Yuma Regional Medical Center Planning for Coronavirus

Arizona Edition

Show number 54

Concerns over coronavirus have seen events cancelled across the state and right here in Yuma County.

Warnings and news reports have people asking if they should shake hands?  What about hugging your mom?  How is this virus different from the flu?  How can we keep each other safe?
