In Conversation: How The Coronavirus Pandemic Is Affecting Kentucky Youth

J. Tyler Franklin

Listen to the episode:

Why does Louisville have so many fish fries?


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.

Tune in at noon Wednesday on 89.3 WFPL, or follow along with our live tweets at @WFPLnews. Call with your questions or comments at 502-814-TALK or tweet us with the hashtag #WFPLconversation. We’re also on Facebook.

And follow our ongoing coverage about the coronavirus through our live blog here.
