Opinion: Local leaders’ insights on COVID-19 battle

The coronavirus pandemic continues to roil Georgia and the world. Official advice can seem confusing, to say the least, as this disease plays out across all our lives.

Extraordinary measures are being rolled out to help contain the spread of COVID-19. These tactics have changed Americans’ lives, and can be a factor in the increased anxiety many of us feel now.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution sees as our job providing you with timely, accurate insights and information about the ongoing outbreak.

Today, we offer a guest column from an Emory Healthcare executive. We’re also publishing a local business leader’s personal experiences in seeking coronavirus testing. We’ll also be posting additional guest columns on AJC.com/opinion.
