Hospitals are limiting who can visit and when during the coronavirus crisis.

In this episode, we check in with the folks who are working tirelessly at the frontlines, caring for the sick and preventing the spread of this coronavirus in our communities: Nurses are playing a larger-than-ever role in this crisis.

Whether it’s in an emergency room or intensive care units, or out in the community at drive-thru testing centers and public health departments, nurses are critcal to our COVID-19 response and care of Missouri patients. 

Our guests:
