Learn about COVID-19 in Washington State from Vice Admiral Bono, King County reopening plans, and cybersecurity for businesses


We’re here to help navigate the questions that employers and employees have during the Coronavirus pandemic in a timely and accurate manner with our #WeGotThisWA Series in partnership with Business Health Trust. This week, get an update on COVID-19 in Washington State from Vice Admiral Bono, learn about 'Safe Start' reopening plans for King County from King County Deputy Executive Rachel Smith, and what businesses of all sizes can do to mitigate risks of cyber attacks with these three events:

#WeGotThisWA: WA State COVID-19 Update from Vice Admiral Bono
June 9 | 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Vice Admiral (ret.) Raquel Bono was named Washington's director for COVID-19 Health System Response Management by Governor Inslee in late March. Since then she has worked to coordinate dozens of hospitals, long term care facilities, and testing sites as pieces of the state's coronavirus response.

She will discuss how the successes and challenges she's seen in her work are reflected in the governor's phased reopening plan and what the future might hold as the state continues its reopening process.

#WeGotThisWA: 'Safe Start' Reopening Plan in King County
June 10 | 11:00 - 11:30 a.m.

The state of Washington has approved King County's application to enter a modified Phase 1 of reopening. This paves the way for non-essential retail and personal and professional services to reopen at reduced capacity with limited timing on indoor visits, all construction to resume, and restaurants to return to indoor and outdoor dining at a reduced capacity.

Rachel Smith, Deputy Executive for King County, will join us to share what businesses and customers can expect as we move into this modified phase of reopening and what the metrics the county will have to meet to move to Phase 2.

#WeGotThisWA: Cybersecurity Concerns for Businesses
June 11 | 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Many employers scrambled to prepare their workforce to work remotely in March as coronavirus concerns shut down office spaces across the US. Staff who previously only worked in the office are now accessing work files on personal, unsecured home internet connections, which leaves companies more vulnerable to cyber attack.

Our panel will discuss what cyber attacks are becoming more prevalent in this time and what businesses of all sizes can do to mitigate their risk as they look at extending remote work into the future.

Register online.

Both of these events are free, and they are open to members and non-members.
