Listen to the episode:
The coronavirus and efforts to stop its spread are affecting youth and childcare in Kentucky.
Jefferson County Public Schools and other Kentucky school districts closed earlier this month, following a recommendation from Gov. Andy Beshear. They also launched plans to teach students remotely. An additional order from the governor shut down childcare services.
This week on a WFPL News special, we discuss how the coronavirus is affecting youth. Our guests include Kentucky Youth Advocates Executive Director Terry Brooks and WFPL News Education and Learning Reporter Jess Clark.
