Ohio Keeps Students Home, Buildings Closed; Pandemic Impact On Public Transit Workers, Riders

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced during his regular afternoon press conference from the Statehouse that schools will remain closed and remote learning will continue through this school year. What does that mean for students, teachers and schools? And will social distancing still impact school in the fall? We'll consult Cleveland Schools CEO Eric Gordon and take your calls. Later, nearly a hundred transit workers nationwide have died after contracting COVID-19. What's being done to protect them? We will ask the head of the Greater Cleveland RTA  about that, about a big drop in ridership and about plans for federal rescue money.  And our Takeout Tuesday feature is really popping.
