Public risk management professionals continue to work to mitigate and manage the risks associated with reopening during the COVID-19 pandemic; sharing information within the risk management community strengthens our ability to reopen public entities safely. Join PRIMA’s COVID-19 Reopening Task Force as they discuss PRIMA’s recent coronavirus white paper.
