Our mission is to end the spread of COVID-19 and achieve Zero COVID by mobilizing science and compassion into action.

We are a multidisciplinary network of experts with a mission to advise policymakers and communities about practical strategies to eliminate COVID-19.

The world is in crisis with the exponential spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus and its variants, while the United States is in the midst of one of the most important political transitions in its history. Defeating the complex problem of COVID-19 requires a coordinated, multifaceted approach. The COVID Action Group has been created to offer support to the newly established national task force and to help guide the country forward. Our group is a multidisciplinary network of experts in pandemics, infectious disease, virology, aerosol and environmental science, health care, mental health, risk communications, science education, business, and law, along with mathematicians, physicists, researchers, communications strategists, and community organizers. We are dedicated to ending the spread of COVID-19 and achieving Zero COVID by advising policy makers, educating and empowering communities, protecting the health and wellbeing of the public, and protecting and restoring the economy.

Our Plan

• Provide practical, science-based, data-driven best practice guidance to leaders and to the public.

• Disseminate key messaging and combat disinformation through the most effective channels.

The COVID-19 pandemic may seem insurmountable at times, but it is not. Several countries have shown the virus can be beaten. We know what works, and we can apply those lessons elsewhere.
