The Coronavirus Closes Ohio Schools Until May 1; Political Impact Of Pandemic; Stimulus Scams

Schools in Ohio will remain closed until May 1, but many are bracing for the in-person school year eventually to be canceled. Meanwhile, Ohio is moblizing to add hospital bed capacity as the peak of the coronavirus pandemic hasn't yet hit. We'll will update you on the pandemic in Ohio and then we will dig into its impact on the 2020 primary, now just a mail-in vote. We'll also dig into the Great Lakes Poll to see how all of this is impacting our politics. Later, we're not all in this together. Scam artists look to capitalize on crisis. We'll tell you what scams to watch for.     And our Ideastream Arts team talks with Anisfield-Wold Book Award director Karen Long about this year's winners.
