Kids' Questions About Coronavirus, Answered!

DAILY: Outbreak on University of Washington's Greek Row

KIRO Radio's Dave Ross and reporter Aaron Granillo discuss the latest plan from Seattle Public Schools to reopen classrooms in the fall. It's going to be expensive. Dozens of students in 10 fraternity houses just north of the University of Washington campus have tested positive for the coronavirus. Now, as many as 1,000 students have been asked to quarantine. Snohomish County may have to move back into Phase 1 as the coronavirus case count continues to spike across Washington state. What does that mean for the upcoming holiday weekend? And, we've got a quick update on the expected timeline for a vaccine.

DAILY: Local Sheriffs Speak Out Against Mandatory Mask Order

KIRO Radio's Dave Ross and reporter Aaron Granillo discuss the loudest mandatory mask dissenters in Washington state - and Dave sings a little ditty he wrote just for them. Plus, we're tracking an increase in coronavirus cases in Snohomish, Pierce and King counties, among others. It has paused plans to move any further through the Governor's phased reopening, at least for now. What's causing the spike?

Is It Safe To Reopen?

States across the country are reopening one by one, and yet coronavirus case numbers have spiked in the places that got the earliest start. This week, KIRO Radio's Dave Ross and reporter Aaron Granillo try to figure out: is this safe? First, a case study of Arizona, which is on track to be the latest coronavirus hotspot. Then, Dave and Aaron discuss the politics of reopening. When did the virus become a partisan issue? Finally, we consult several epidemiologists. What's really safe? And where will we be in the fall? Thank you to all of our guests on the show: You can find more reporting from KNAU's Melissa Sevigny on her website as she continues to track the rising case numbers in Arizona. Huge thanks The Gee and Ursula Show for their interviews with virologist Dr. Angela Rasmussen at Columbia University, which informed our reporting. Dr. Rasmussen is a regular guest every Tuesday morning - tune in on 97.3 FM. And thank you to Dr. Erin Bromage from the University of Massachusetts and Dr. Keith Jerome from the University of Washington. Listen to their full interviews with Dave on the Ross Files podcast.

DAILY: King County Moves to Phase Two

King County moves to Phase Two today. What will change? KIRO Radio's Dave Ross and reporter Aaron Granillo have all the key details. We're not leaving the term "Modified Phase One" behind, though. For a list of the new status of every county in Washington state, you can refer here. Governor Inslee also updated the health and safety guidelines for religious services. Dave is ready to compete with the church organ again, even if he has to wear a mask. And people are already lining up outside the arena for Trump's Saturday rally in Oklahoma. Masks will be provided but not required - although a state Supreme Court ruling could change that.
