Description

If you're confused about the new CDC Coronavirus guidelines, you're not alone.

In fact, this week, the American Medical Association released a statement saying, "The new recommendations on quarantine and isolation are not only confusing, but are risking further spread of the virus."

Adherence to public health guidelines is built on trust, and over the last few weeks, trust in the CDC seems to be eroding.

Jessica Malaty Rivera, a Senior Advisor at the Pandemic Prevention Institute and a science communicator, explains how we got to this point...and what steps need to be taken to ensure public trust in the CDC.

In participating regions, you'll also hear a local news segment that will help you make sense of what's going on in your community.
