The past 18 months have been (insert adjective of your choice). The Delta Variant has found its way to the Evansville area, leaving us with a lot of questions. Business owners will be able to ask those questions during a virtual town hall meeting Monday, August 16, 2021.

The free Zoom meeting will be hosted by the Southwest Indiana Chamber from 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM. The town hall will feature a COVID-19 presentation by Dr. James Porter, MD, FAAP, FACHE, President of Deaconess Health System. He will refer to our community specifically.

If you own a business, you'll want the latest information on how to keep your staff and customers safe. The Vanderburgh County Health Department will address questions about the COVID-19 Vaccine and the Delta Variant.
