Congressman Kim to Hold Telephone Town Hall
on Coronavirus Second Wave Preparedness

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Andy Kim (NJ-03) announced that he will be holding a telephone town hall on Tuesday, October 6th at 5:30pm to discuss preparations for a potential second wave of the coronavirus. Congressman Kim will be joined by Dr. Caitlin Rivers, Senior Scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Her research focuses on improving public health preparedness and response, particularly by improving capabilities for “outbreak science” and infectious disease modeling to support public health decision making. This is the Congressman’s 26th town hall since he was sworn into office in January 2019.

“The past few days have shown us that the coronavirus threat in New Jersey is far from gone, and the importance of being prepared for a full second wave of the virus,” said Congressman Kim. “I look forward to this important discussion with Dr. Rivers and our neighbors across Burlington and Ocean Counties.”

Earlier this month, Congressman Kim released ‘The Way Forward: Preparing America for a Second Wave’, a set of recommendations for public health leaders and public officials to prepare for a potential second wave of COVID-19.
