Reporter Roundup: COVID-19, Funeral Service Changes
March 24, 2020
On Tuesday, March 24 the Reporter Roundup features KPCC reporters with the latest on COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County, the local economic impact and how funeral directors are factoring in social distancing when planning services.
Los Angeles County Department of Public Health officials announced today four coronavirus deaths, including a person under the age of 18. KPCC’s Jackie Fortier has the details.
While job losses across the state are staggering, KPCC’s David Wagner reports some businesses are on a hiring spree.
Social distancing orders are moving memorial services online and delaying large funerals according to KPCC’s Sharon McNary. Several County coroner officials across the state are making contingency plans to handle a potential surge in coronavirus deaths in the region.
