Health & Safety Teams

We have transitioned from the Phase I work of the Health & Safety Working Group (HSWG), which provided us with a fully vetted series of recommendations and shared community expectations, to Phase II work, which will be managed by our new COVID Response Team (CRT).  Vice Presidents Casey Gill and Gary Williams will continue to lead the CRT just as they did the HSWG with other senior staff members serving in ex-officio capacities.
