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

Frequent handwashing along with maintaining social distance remains at the top of best practices to avoid contracting and spreading the coronavirus.

Panelists answered questions regarding the coronavirus and the resources available in the Kansas City area to diagnose and treat.

As part of special coverage of the novel coronavirus, KCUR 89.3 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 in need of cash who wanted to know if even the drive-through at the bank could put her at risk.  

If you wish to support United Way of Greater Kansas City efforts during the novel coronavirus health crisis text KCRelief2020 to 414-44 or go to http://igfn.us/f/2pqv/n to donate.  All funds will remain in the Kansas City area and be used to support UWGKC’s partner agencies and programs.

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.
