Restaurant Unstoppable with Eric Cacciatore

Dr. Kara Farley is a veteran, wife, mother of two, and physician. The COVID-19 pandemic occurred during Dr. Farley's last tour as a Naval Flight Surgeon. During that time, Dr. Farley was a lead member of the public health emergency services team where she created and implemented protocol aimed at decreasing transmission between sailors and soldiers. During her transition out of the military, she realized that the civilian sector was in need of these same services she created. In June she started Blue Ocean Health Services, which aims to give your business the tools for success during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

Today we're here to discuss COVID-19 best practices.
