For community radio stations that welcome and interact with the community, the spread of coronavirus has created stress. How can your station respond to COVID-19?
All states, counties and cities have an emergency preparedness team, often composed of area government, police, firefighters and media. Stations are encouraged to work with their regional leadership to communicate news and alerts to their communities.
All stations should set up hygiene and cleaning rules and remind volunteers to not come in sick or if they’ve been exposed to sick people.
Need a deep dive on how your community radio station can respond to the coronavirus? The National Federation of Community Broadcasters issued a directive on COVID-19 response for radio stations. We address some of the key decisions before community radio stations in particular. The guidance is available in NFCB’s Solution Center. If your station is not yet a member, you can join today.
