Governor Ducey And Health Experts To Hold Town Hall On Coronavirus

Arizona Department of Health Services

The Arizona Department of Health Services says as of Wednesday there are now more than 1, 413 known cases of Coronavirus statewide and 29 fatalities. There were 124 new cases of COVID-19 reported in Arizona yesterday.

Meanwhile, Governor Doug Ducey’s office is partnering with the Arizona Broadcasters Association and Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism to hold a live town hall tonight on the pandemic. The hour-long conversation will be broadcast on 80 local TV and radio stations statewide—including on KNAU at six o’clock Thursday evening and we will stream the town hall at our homepage:

Also participating in the town hall will be Arizona Department of Health Services Director Dr. Cara Christ, Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs Director Major General Michael T. McGuire, and State of Arizona Chief Operating Officer Daniel Ruiz.

Virtual questions from the public can be submitted in advance through local television and radio stations across the state (on KNAU's Facebook page--leave your questions in comment section under Town Hall banner)

The event will be moderated by Arizona PBS journalist Ted Simmons and long-time journalist Carey Peña.
