This Science on Tap: At Home Edition will feature a panel of experts sharing their perspective on the COVID-19 pandemic.  We have 4 scientists that will share their insights on the virus, the impact, and the response.  The session will be presented in webinar format with opportunities for participants to ask questions of the panelists.  While most Science on Tap: At Home Edition events last one hour, we anticipate numerous questions, and will stay live as long as possible to get as many questions answered as possible.  Below is the list of panelists and the focus of their opening comments:
