SACRAMENTO, CA, January 18, 2022…Despite the presence of the Omicron variant, the latest modeling (January 17) projects the risk of COVID transmission during the January 25-27 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium at a rate of less than 2 cases per 10,000 guests, a figure below the CDC threshold for safe travel.
PITTSBURGH, PA, January 6, 2022 - Epistemix, a computational modeling software company that develops simulations to model the spread of diseases and inform policy, today released updated data that projects the risk of COVID transmission during the January 25-27 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium at a rate of 1 case per 10,000 of its 12,000-person conference.
“Creating a controlled environment is crucial for conferences like the Unified Symposium,” says Dr. Lindsey Reiser, Managing Director of Professional Services, Epistemix. “The robust program of safety measures that the Unified Symposium will have in place means a reduction in transmissibility by 80% compared to other typical activities in Sacramento public spaces.”
SACRAMENTO, Calif., December 14, 2021 – With so much attention paid to climate change, the 2022 Unified Wine and Grape Symposium this January has appropriately recruited the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) climate director to open the prestige three-day event. As Unified’s Tuesday luncheon keynote speaker, Dr. Steven Ostoja, director of the USDA California Climate Hub, will offer his insights into how a changing climate and extreme weather are affecting agriculture and winegrape production, adaptation strategies growers need to know about and ways the industry can combat a changing climate. The luncheon will take place at Sacramento’s SAFE Credit Union Convention Center on Tuesday, January 25, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
