Timeline: May 2020 – ongoing

The WSAS COVID-19 Steering Committee will develop actions to be taken by the Academy to assist the state in dealing with the pandemic. The actions could involve near-term advice and longer-term assessments of outcomes and recommendations on how to prepare for future emergencies.
