Roxie, you’re breaking up
Roxie Murphy
20:33
Sorry Robert Cox. Everyone else is breaking up bad on my end. I think it is the internet connection in town today. Ugh.

Local real estate agent tells me this is a seller’s market and he’s doing his best year in home sales since 2004. Almost immediately noticed this since start of lockdown.

Central MO people — which side of the fed split do you fall under?
Robert Cox

We saw that here too. April was close to normal, though.

And yet the governor is gutting the K-12 and higher education budgets.

I didn't even know Family Dollar sold alcohol, the one that was here in Columbia never did.
Katelyn Mary Skaggs

Peggy Scott: that list has a lot of Crystal City businesses on it
Missouri Press
01:07:01
It was very useful information, lots of great resources! Thanks so much!
Ted Lawrence
01:07:32
Thanks, Marty. Good stuff!
Roxie Murphy
01:15:10
Just had a car roll over into the ditch here at the Advocate. I'm probably going to miss the rest while I inter view people. Great show again today folks!

We always called it “baby reporting” after we were through the first class
Jay Forness - CBJ
01:22:51
I cover a lot of education stuff and they are all currently COVID stories right now too
hannahspaar
01:23:27
Agree with Jay. Many of my government, education, etc. stories are also COVID stories.
Robert Cox
01:23:56
It’s tiring, but it’s also gotten easier. I have done a weekly update on the status of the pandemic since March. It doesn’t take me very long to put it together anymore.
Robert Cox
01:24:23
It helps that I have a good relationship with our health department.
Michael Shine (DAR)
01:24:45
I feel like at this point anything I write, I ask the question “how does COVID impact this?"
Robert Cox
01:25:01
^^This^^
Jay Forness - CBJ
01:25:26
yup. almost every story I write has at least one COVID paragraph
hannahspaar
01:26:07
I don’t know that anything I’ve written since late March hasn’t come to me COVID-first. Definitey have the COVID graf down.
Robert Cox
01:28:04
Today’s dumba** comment on Facebook: “Without fear,worry,political bias and insecurity the newspaper would be the hometown newspaper I remember as a child 👍! Keep up the good work growing your business to where it is today. Unprofitable and Dying!”
hannahspaar
01:28:31
Yikes!! Makes me glad people don’t comment on our Facebook very much
Mary King
01:33:41
I have both KCMO Health Dept. and Jackson Co. Health Dept. in my coverage...and haven't been able to get them to tell me real numbers on WHERE the folks are located, specifically...and we're so spread out here that I can't report those numbers because they will be too vague, as far as location goes.
Peggy Scott
01:34:03
We have tons of interaction on Facebook. Here's one: Top FanTamara CollinsDennis Eaton don't you like how they dramatically post it all the time wondering just how much is actually true.
Mary King
01:35:06
YES. Jackson County and KCMO are on completely different wavelengths when it comes to COVID. It's hard for me to keep up, let alone the general population.
Robert Cox
01:36:20
This is what the Health Department is sending out now.
Katelyn Mary Skaggs
01:37:00
Our Health Department is reporting numbers in the same way
Robert Cox
01:37:34
This is what they used yo send out:

This is all we get from the Nodaway County Health Department when a new positive case is reported:
Steven Chappell
01:41:58
Press Release - June 17, 2020Nodaway County Health Department Administrator, Tom Patterson, announces a fifteenth individual in Nodaway County, Missouri has tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).The affected individuals are a male between 30-39 years of age and two females between 1-10 years of age.

If you are not contacted by the health department, then you are not considered a close contact and not at risk.The health department urges the public to practic
Robert Cox
01:42:13
Wow ...
Robert Cox
01:42:31
That’s … extremely not helpful.
Steven Chappell
01:42:51
Yep. And Tom refuses to make any statements to the media beyond what’s in the press release.
Steven Chappell
01:43:48
We don’t even know how many tests are being administered, or are even available. But a call to my doctor indicated that, unless you are extremely sick, you can’t get a test here because they don’t have enough even for the front-line workers.
Katelyn Mary Skaggs
01:44:06
We have 445 cases in Jefferson County and our Health Director is just doing FB live statements.
Robert Cox
01:45:57
I’ve been told that only positive results are reportable.
hannahspaar
01:48:59
On the state level they’re underreporting one death for our county and overreporting cases
hannahspaar
01:49:15
Personally I trust our county health more but I have a good relationship with the dept.

Jay Forness - CBJ
01:49:43
yeah, we’ve decided to go with our county data. it seems like the state has been delayed for us
Robert Cox
01:50:08
County here too.
hannahspaar

A trucking company recently put refrigerator trucks in an old car dealership and every few weeks someone will ask if they’re to hold dead bodies from the pandemic
Robert Cox
01:57:12
You mean more research than watching a couple Youtube videos?!
Robert Cox
02:01:12
I got my second wind in late April.
Robert Cox
02:05:02
None here, yet
Missouri Press
02:10:21
There is information that there is going to be an outbreak with college students because there's been a couple that were at a LARGE pool party earlier this week that have tested positive already. So, I guess we see how that's reported with Boone Co.
Missouri Press
02:10:41
We will see
Steven Chappell
02:19:01
I think how the state’s colleges and universities are planning to handle this will be the next big story for newspapers in college communities. Near as I can tell, and I’m speaking as a college media adviser talking to other advisers in the state, no two schools are following the same policies for reopening.
