Congressman Salud Carbajal and public health officials from San Luis Obispo county and Santa Barbara county hosted an interactive town hall meeting focusing on COVID-19 on Aug. 13.

Health Officer/Public Health Director for San Luis Obispo County Dr. Penny Borenstein and Director of the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department Dr. Van Do-Reynoso provided the latest status of coronavirus in their counties.

They answered questions and concerns from participants about COVID-19, some of which include how contact tracing works and how to protect one's eyes.
