This is NSPR’s weekday show about the local and regional effects of COVID-19 in the North State. Listen each weekday at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 a.m. NSPR will continue this special coverage as long as our community needs it. Our mission with this show is to provide accurate news and information about COVID-19 for the North State.


Does visiting an ice cream shop put you at greater risk of contracting COVID-19 than a fast-food restaurant? How to navigate which businesses are the safest to visit and which might not be is what we’re exploring today with help from the podcast Pandemic Economics. It’s from The Becker Friedman Institute for Economics at the University of Chicago and it's hosted by Eduardo Porter and a good friend of this station, Tess Vigeland. It’s an interesting conversation, we highly recommend staying tuned.
