Charlottesville Quarantine Report

Catching up on the Fourth of July

Episode Summary

Four months ago, the very first case of COVID-19 was diagnosed and reported in Virginia, back on March 7. On March 11, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam took to a crowded stage where people were standing close to each other, no masks. The very name of the disease was not yet common. We're now in Phase 3 of the Forward Virginia plan, and this installment of the show gets us caught up before we wait to see if surges in other states will lead to a pause or a rollback in the reopening. After a news update, we hear some information from Governor Ralph Northam from late June. We also hear an interview with Ella Jordan, the longtime clerk of the Albemarle Board of Supervisors and community leader. That's part of the Hope and Resilience Conversation series from the Center for Nonprofit Excellence.
