In conversation with Professor Chris Whitty

27 June 2022, 3:15 pm - 4:00 pm

Interactive Q+A session with Professor Chris Whitty and Dr Susan Hopkins (UK Health Security Agency) to take questions from the small business community on COVID-19.

COVID-19 is not over.  Small businesses are still facing the impacts of COVID, often in their workplaces and among their staff.  The prospect of future variants is a key concern, especially as we look beyond the summer.

Professor Chris Whitty will be joined by Dr Susan Hopkins of UKHSA and FSB’s own Tina McKenzie and Craig Beaumont to take your questions around COVID-19, the latest public health advice, and the impact of COVID on small businesses like yours.  Is the pandemic effectively over?  Should we treat COVID-19 much like flu or other respiratory infections?  Should you still be wearing masks?  Should we be preparing for Winter 2022/23 to be as bad for COVID-19 impact/restrictions as 2021 and 2020?  Have non-Covid health impacts been considered enough?

To get your answers to questions like these, submit them in advance and join the live event with our panel on 27 June.
