Taiwan has received international praise for their response to the COVID-19 pandemic and ability to contain cases. New Taipei, Taiwan’s largest city with 4 million residents, is leading the way in the post-pandemic era by setting the global standards for the “new normal” as an inclusive and resilient city. This webinar will bring together policy makers, senior health officers, and strategic partners from the Bay Area and New Taipei to discuss strategies and practices in the reopening phase to allow for smooth and safe transitions.
