Virtual town hall panel focuses on local resources to help with COVID-19 impacts

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Leaders of four Routt County nonprofit organizations will participate in a virtual panel discussion Tuesday to address questions about COVID-19 impacts and how people can find local resources for help.

The town hall panel, previously held inside Steamboat City Hall, is now moving to a virtual format in response to the stay-at-home order and the recommendations that all people wear protective masks. This is the eighth panel that has been held since the COVID-19 outbreak began. The series is sponsored by the city of Steamboat Springs and Routt County in partnership with Steamboat Pilot & Today.

The virtual discussion starts at 10:30 a.m. and panelists include Nelly Navarro, executive director of Integrated Community; Lisel Petis, executive director of Advocates of Routt County; Stephanie Einfeld, CEO of Northwest Colorado Health; and Mindy Marriott, executive director of REPS — Reaching Everyone Preventing Suicide.

Steamboat Pilot & Today Editor Lisa Schlichtman will moderate the panel discussion, which will be available as a live video on Steamboat Pilot & Today’s Facebook page, on TV18, the local news station Comcast TV6 and on the city’s website.
