This week on Soundboard, we cover the issue that has changed all of our lives in some way the past two weeks: the novel coronavirus. Elliott at Charlottesville Tomorrow gives us an update on how the virus has impacted the health and economic security of people in our community. Plus, we talk to Dr. Leigh-Ann J. Webb, an assistant professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Virginia, about how the health system prepares for a crisis like this one.
"WASH YOUR HANDS" can be read on the Freedom of Speech Wall on the Downtown Mall on Sunday. The phrase has become a mantra during the COVID-19 virus outbreak.
