Reporter Roundup: Coronavirus, the Census and Protecting Prisoners

On Friday’s Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters discuss where the public can get tested for the coronavirus and how the coronavirus is impacting the 2020 census and what is being done to protect prisoners from an outbreak.

In Los Angeles only a handful of hospitals are providing coronavirus testing and generally only to patients who are exhibiting serious symptoms. KPCC’s Robert Garrova has an update on where testing sites will open.

Reporter Emily Elena Dugdale reports that jails and prisons across the state are taking precautions to prevent the virus from entering the facilities.

Census field operations have been suspended but federal officials are encouraging the public to respond online. Reporter Caroline Champlin breaks down what COVID-19 means for the count.

The Reporter Roundup airs Monday through Friday.
