Cleveland Curfew; COVID-19 Home Monitoring; Plasma Donors Seek To Help COVID Patients

Featured Audio

Downtown Cleveland and  the West 25th Market District were locked down overnight as the city, after lifting a 24-hour curfew, began instituting an 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. restriction on access to those areas. This afer a tumultuous week in Cleveland and cities across the nation as protesters demand that we face up to our problem with racism, in police departments and society as a whole. We'll solicit more of your thoughts to begin this hour and discuss the latest. Later, we'll learn how the Cleveland Clinic is safely monitoring COVID-19 patients as they recover at home and we'll talk to a COVID-19 survivor who is donating his convalescent plasma through the Red Cross to help others to heal.
