WEMU Staff Reflects On One-Year Anniversary Of COVID Pandemic

One year has passed since the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic.  Thousands of lives were lost, businesses were forced to close, and any sense of normal life was changed forever.  WEMU's own David Fair, Molly Motherwell, and Michael Jewett sit down and talk about this past year's events and how WEMU itself found ways to continue serving the public.
