Coronavirus Q&A: Is It Safe To Go To The Bank?

Frequent handwashing and maintaining social distance are the best way to avoid contracting and spreading COVID-19.

Answers to coronavirus questions, and resources available in the Kansas City area

As part of special coverage of the novel coronavirus, KCUR opened the phone lines to answer your questions. From hospital preparedness to mental health to where to find social services, our panel of experts fielded questions from around the metro, including one senior who wanted to know if the drive-thru at the bank could put her at risk.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
