9:00 am to 11:30 am

The Research, Innovation, and Impact Department present the Collaborative for Global Adaptive Pandemic Solutions (CGAPS) virtual workshop “What we learned from the COVID-19 pandemic about school closures.” 

The workshop will discuss the topics of education and the mental health impacts of school closures on children and their families. The discussion will also include pros and cons of school closures, data on school related outbreaks, how to make decisions about when to close schools, and the impact of school closures on faculty, staff and students.

University of Arizona’s Collaborative for Global Adaptive Pandemic Solutions (CGAPS) workshops aim to use knowledge of COVID-19 to predict and prepare for the next pandemic by engaging University scientists and community members together around themes related to COVID-19. These workshops will discuss what we have learned, and what questions we would still like to answer.
