COVID Restrictions: Impact on Small Business and Thanksgiving Travel

On the Nov. 18 edition of the Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters discuss the impact of COVID restrictions on small businesses and Thanksgiving travel, how Census results could change depending on the administration delivering them, and a deep dive on the current state of immigration policy. 

Curfew Impact on Small Business  
In response to the current COVID-19 surge, Los Angeles County has imposed a curfew of 10 p.m. on non-essential businesses like restaurants, with tighter capacity limits. Matt Dangelantonio shares how small businesses are bracing for another round of restrictions. 

Thanksgiving Travel 
Public health officials are saying to stay home as we ride out this latest Covid-19 surge as we enter Thanksgiving week. Lisa Brenner talks about how to stay safe — if you have to travel for the holidays. 

Biden and 2020 Census 
Data collection for the 2020 Census has ended but the new Joe Biden administration could impact the results. Caroline Champlin discusses how undocumented U.S. residents could be counted, depending on when results are delivered. 

Immigration Policy 
KPCC show “Take Two” is devoting an hour on Thursday to the Trump administration’s impact on immigration policies — and what a Biden administration could do going forward. Leslie Berenstein Rojas offers a preview.
