As many Western states enter peak summer harvest season, there is increasing concern over the potential impact of COVID-19 on the agricultural workforce. This Thursday, July 9, join Western Growers for part three of our COVID-19 webinar series, which will address the latest guidance related to shared housing and transportation in the fresh produce industry.
Western Growers Vice President and General Counsel Jason Resnick will be accompanied by Dr. Richard Stup of Cornell University, Susan Quale of Sierra-Cascade Nursery, and Lorraine Ingram of Tanimura & Antle. The group will discuss CDC recommendations related to share housing and transportation, provide practical solutions for the fresh produce industry, and address specific considerations for H-2A workers.
Time will be allotted for a Q & A session following the presentation.
