The pandemic might feel endless, but for scientists COVID-19 is still relatively new and research is evolving quickly. We’ll talk with an infectious disease specialist about major  studies that have come out recently. There are new findings on masks, the effectiveness of vaccines, and how much immunity we get from prior COVID infections.  We’ll talk about the newest research and treatments and we’ll take your questions.
