POLITICO Dispatch

In the shadow of the pandemic

Episode Notes

Nursing homes across the country have closed their doors to visitors amid the pandemic. POLITICO’s Alexandra Levine explains how that lack of human connection — combined with communication problems — has left nursing home residents and their families in the dark. Plus, airlines are planning massive layoffs if Congress doesn’t renew payroll support. And Wisconsin's governor declares a state of emergency amid protests over a police shooting.
