Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA-15) announced he will hold a Facebook Live Q&A on Thursday, May 7th with special guest Arelis Sandoval, a Public Health Nurse for the Alameda County Public Health Department.

This Facebook Live Q&A is the ninth thus far in the Congressman’s weekly series of “live” events to help his constituents stay informed on the spread of the coronavirus, and its impact on our day-to-day lives. 

“So long as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends limiting in-person gatherings and following social distancing rules, I will continue to host a robust schedule of ‘live’ events,” Swalwell said. “I want to hear from you, keep answering your questions, and discuss what really matters to our community. I look forward to speaking this Thursday with Arelis Sandoval, who can provide us with a much needed ‘boots on the ground’ perspective of how our local officials are responding to this crisis.”


The Facebook Live Q&A will take place at 1:30 P.M. PT on Thursday, May 7th.
