When COVID-19 patients are well enough to leave the hospital but still too sick to be on their own at home, they often are discharged to rehab beds in nursing homes. And nursing homes are where the most vulnerable populations live. That's a concern for family members who worry their loved ones could be exposed. Ideastream's Marlene Harris-Taylor shares what she's learned to begin today's program. A bit later in the program, we're going to focus on the digital divide. Inequity has been further exposed during this pandemic in urban and rural neighborhoods as children are expected to learn and employees told to work digitally. Many don't have the hardware or the broadband for that.
