Coronavirus
As a new strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) swept through the world in 2020, preparedness plans, masking policies and more public policy changed just as quickly. WVXU has covered the pandemic's impact on the Tri-State from the very beginning, when on March 3, 2020, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine barred spectators from attending the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus over concerns about the virus, even though Ohio had yet to confirm a single case of COVID-19.

With the COVID-19 pandemic impacting state budgets, Ohio schools are facing $300 million in cuts to K-12 education. Cincinnati Public Schools will see its funding cut by more than $8 million at the end of the state fiscal year on June 30. As Ohio's third largest district, it could also see enrollment grow significantly this fall under the pandemic - but will classes resume in-person or online?
