Join us at 1 p.m. on Monday, following HearSay with Cathy Lewis, for a special program from NPR.

This special report will feature some of NPR’s most robust reporting on the novel coronavirus and the disease it causes, COVID-19. The focus of this special will center on what we have learned about the virus and the implications for the American public as a whole.

In the opening segment, we’ll hear about the science of the virus itself and what is known about how it spreads. Later in the program, we’ll turn to institutional action and how schools, workplaces, and the health care industry are responding. Finally, we’ll hear more about how people can prepare for the virus themselves, with a focus on personal safety measures and household readiness.

The program will be hosted by Lulu Garcia-Navarro.
