Reporter Roundup: PPP Loans, COVID-19 Testing

On the July 9 edition of the Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters have the latest on COVID-19 testing in Orange County, mobile home park inspections and federal small business loan recipients. 

KPCC’s Aaron Mendelson reports a state audit says inspectors aren’t doing a good job finding dirty and dangerous conditions in mobile home parks. 

Los Angeles’s Westside got by far the most paycheck protection program loans of any region of the county. Emily Guerin explains why. 

KPCC’s Josie Huang has details on a new COVID-19 testing being used in Orange County that may make the process safer and more efficient.

Groceries | September 25

On the September 25 edition of the Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters and KCET producers discuss updates on grocery inventories, the Census and election prep.
