We’re talking about the impact of the coronavirus on Utah – our local businesses, arts organizations, neighbors and friends. How are we coping?
In this hour we’ll talk about the economic consequences of so many people staying home, and of course, and the emotional toll of the isolation. It’s a time unlike most of us have ever experienced (with an earthquake, too!) and we are checking with members of the community to get a sense of how we’re doing. If you have experiences or thoughts you’d like to share, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
