“The COVID-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on our community,” said City of West Hollywood Mayor Pro Tempore Lauren Meister. “The impact of the pandemic is not only financial; we are also witnessing effects on physical and emotional well-being. As we emerge from the difficult period we’ve all been through, it’s important to recognize that many people may need a little extra support in recovering. I hope this panel will help make the process just a little bit easier by offering insights into topics such as going back to work, socializing, and dealing with pet anxiety. Let’s all do what we can to help one another as we get back to a new normal.”
“The past year and a half has taken a toll on all of us in a way this generation has never experienced,” said City of West Hollywood Councilmember Sepi Shyne. “As we are coming out of the pandemic and moving to a new normal, it is important to discuss the effect of the past year and a half on our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. This panel of experts will provide much needed insight and tools to help us navigate back to this new normal in a state of well-being and balance, including advice from a local dog trainer on how to deal with separation anxiety when going back to work and leaving your fur-family at home again.”
