Lessons from the Pandemic: Social Toolkit

Jul 14, 2020 by AFP

Lessons from the Pandemic is a new video series that shows how specific government regulations and red tape initially hampered our response to COVID-19, but that once these regulations were eased or eliminated the situation improved.

But these changes are only temporary—we’re working to make them permanent and need your help!

RULES & REGULATIONS

Some 36 states have rules on the books that limit the ability for hospitals to expand capacity for much needed equipment – like beds and ventilators. Suspending these rules has allowed for more capacity to meet the needs of the pandemic. #HealthCareReimagined
