NORTHWEST ARKANSAS (KNWA/KFTA) — Local health care experts give their professional opinions on business reopening across the state.
The Northwest Arkansas Council hosted a return to work webinar today along with experts from UAMS, Mercy Health Clinic, Washington Regional, and Whole Health Institute.
Some of the discussion topics during the event included federal, state and local resources, employee health and safety, testing, and tips to alleviate the stresses of returning to work.
“The cases here in Northwest Arkansas are rising and we expect that to continue as the economy continues to open back up. And as we move to open businesses, bring back employees, bring back customers, I think it’s incumbent on all of us in our professional and personal capacities to ensure we can do everything we can to make that safe,” Nelson Peacock, President & CEO of the Northwest Arkansas Council says.
Peacock says that his organization has put together a resource guide with Dr. Jay Gandy with UAMS to aid businesses in the area with return to work efforts.
