Coronavirus / COVID-19

Across the U.S. and around the globe, environmental health professionals are on the frontlines of preventive public health services delivery, and NEHA is committed to supporting the EH workforce to effectively and safely do their jobs.

“Over the next few weeks, environmental health professionals, like Atlas of Greek mythology, will be asked to hoist many burdens upon their shoulders.”

We will mediate society’s return to normalcy. The stress promises to be intense and relentless. The issues will be emotional and compelling. The time in history that puts us—environmental health professionals—at the intersection of COVID-19 is just ahead. I can visualize the bend in the road with the warning sign blinking.
