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.

Instacart workers demanding new protections and better pay amid the COVID-19 global pandemic. As millions of consumers turn to online retailers at a time of stay-at-home orders, workers say their employers aren't taking enough precautions to protect them on the job. Last week some workers for grocery delivery app Instacart began a nationwide strike demanding hazard pay.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the protests is Washington Post Technology and Culture Reporter Nitasha Tiku.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
