Approaches to Easing Social Measures

Executives and representatives from 23 cities worldwide joined a virtual convening to discuss safely loosening physical distancing measures, and the array of indicators and considerations which would inform a city’s strategy. The session also provided a venue for an exchange of COVID-19 experiences and strategies. Mayors Lori Lightfoot of Chicago, USA and Rosy Senanayake of Colombo, Sri Lanka shared updates from their cities, the need to support vulnerable populations through deep community engagement, and the benefits of coordinating local and national response where possible.
