The 21st Show

The 21st—Wednesday, April 15, 2020


States are competing to get personal protective equipment, which has been in short supply for health care workers. 

We talk to Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza about some of the unusual measure her office has taken to procure medical supplies.

We also talk to experts about the damage COVID-19 is doing to the state’s finances. 

Plus, even though the stay-at-home order has shut down many businesses, the need for everyday services, like haircuts, doesn’t stop. Today we hear from stylists and a salon owner about how they're trying to navigate the crisis.
