COVID-19 Community Report Episode 28: Speaking with Yolo County Information Officer Jenny Tan and Emily Henderson from Acme Theatre Co. - Jul 14th, 2020

Today's first guest is Jenny Tan, Public Information Officer for Yolo County. Many may know Jenny from her weekday "Daily Briefing" live video updates on the county's Facebook page.  We talk about her evolving role, and she updates us with the latest news on the numbers within Yolo County, including hospital beds, testing sites, and recent changes to the county's public health orders.  Throughout the pandemic, Jenny has been an extremely helpful resource for the latest COVID-19 information locally, as well as helping this show to continue to book interviews with public health professionals. 

My second guest is Emily Henderson, the Artistic Director for Acme Theatre Company. We'll hear how this student-run theatre company has pivoted in the time of COVID, as well as current offerings and opportunities, such as forthcoming livestream show "Dear Harvey." 

This episode marks four months since the start of this series. The ongoing format will continue to include (and start with) an interview directly related to some aspect of COVID-19, followed by a bit shorter interview designed to highlight and bring awareness to a local arts/culture organization or individual, noting how they have been affected by the pandemic.
