News 9 Practicing Social Distancing During Newscasts
News 9's team of Karl Torp, Sylvia Corkill, Cassie Heiter and Brian Mueller showed what it looks like when a newsroom practices social distancing.
What is social distancing? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explains that it's a conscious effort to limit the size of groups and gatherings and an attempt to maximize space between people in hopes of limiting the spread of a virus. In this case, of course, we're talking about the coronavirus (COVID-19).
The CDC and President Trump have both encouraged social distancing as the country fights this once-in-a-lifetime pandemic.
It's not the only precaution we've put into place at News 9, but we thought it would be noticeable enough to you, the viewer, that we wanted to explain it.
