News editor Mike Clark-Madison hosts the show this week and is joined by health reporter Margaret Nicklas and staff writer Kevin Curtin to discuss this fast-moving story. How fast? Between the time they taped the show on Thursday and it aired today on KOOP, more major cancellations like Rodeo Austin were announced, schools have gotten a jump on spring break with early shutdowns, cases of COVID-19 in the Austin area have been confirmed, the governor has declared a statewide public health disaster, and the president has declared a national emergency.
