How the Southern Hemisphere Responded to a Winter of pandemic As the winter months loom ahead, there is much uncertainty as the pandemic continues. Oregon’s COVID-19 case count is on the rise, and temperatures are falling, making businesses who’ve relied on moving their operations outdoors nervous about the future. This panel discussion, moderated by the Columbia Gorge Tourism Alliance (CGTA), engages tourism agency experts from New Zealand and Australia about their experiences with COVID-19 during their winter months. The one-hour webinar will explore each country’s response to the crisis, how tourism was affected, their strategies for supporting business, and the communications they used along the way. This panel is facilitated by the Columbia Gorge Tourism Alliance and brought to you through a collaboration with Travel Oregon.
