This week, Soundboard talks to Jodean Chisholm and Kendall Barger. Kendall is a nurse in the University of Virginia Medical Center’s Medical Intensive Care Unit, and Jodean is a nurse manager on 3 Central. They’re both working on the front line and have treated some of those in our community who have been hospitalized with COVID-19. Stay tuned to catch up with Charlottesville Tomorrow and hear from a lawyer representing folks who have been detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in our area and are especially vulnerable to COVID-19.
