AAHA biosecurity experts to host COVID-19 webinar
Interested in the animal health implications of COVID-19?
Two of the experts who helped put together the 2018 AAHA Infection Control, Prevention, and Biosecurity Guidelines want to fill you in during a free webinar this Thursday, March 19.
Jason Stull, VMD, MPVM, PhD, DACVPM, chair of AAHA’s Infection Control, Prevention, and Biosecurity Guidelines Task Force and Scott Weese, DVM, DVSc, DACVIM, a contributing reviewer, will host the webinar, “Coronavirus (COVID-19) in veterinary and animal group settings: Protecting people and animals,” which is sponsored by Virox Animal Health.
“We chose Dr. Stull and Dr. Weese because we believe that they’re the best-equipped experts in the world to discuss the animal health implications of COVID-19,” said Todd Hepburn, director of corporate partnerships at Virox, an AAHA Strategic Alliance Partner.
The World Health Organization recently classified COVID-19 as a pandemic, but much is still unknown about the disease and many questions remain about what those working in companion-animal care and similar settings (e.g., veterinary practices, doggie daycares, shelters, boarding facilities) should do to prevent illness in staff and address related animal/patient concerns.
The webinar will provide a brief summary of the current COVID-19 status in people and animals, along with specific suggestions for protecting the health of people and animals in veterinary- and animal-care group settings.
The webinar is this Thursday, March 19, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. (EST).
Registration is limited to 5,000 attendees, so sign up now.
