The coronavirus pandemic has tested us all, but it has been particularly trying for medical experts and health officials. Cities, school systems, businesses and the public have looked to them for guidance on how to deal with this.
And now, just as we thought we were emerging, the delta variant has taken center stage and threatens our recovery. In Mecklenburg County, the responsibility of guiding major decisions surrounding the virus has fallen on health director Gibbie Harris.
Harris has announced she’ll retire at the end of this year, but not before she guides us through this next stage of the pandemic.
We talk with her about the latest trends, vaccinations, lessons learned and more.
