Tuesday on Lake Effect: April Election, Death Preparedness, Senior Isolation

Tuesday on Lake Effect:

The chair of the Wisconsin Election Commission defends the decision to move forward with the April 7 election. We look at how it could be impacted by the “safer-at-home” order. Then, Italy’s funeral homes are struggling to keep up with respectful burial practices during the pandemic. How prepared are we in Wisconsin? And at a time when senior living facilities are being placed on lock down, we explore the effects of senior isolation.

  • Robyn Gershon, clinical professor of epidemiology at New York University; Mark Krause, president and owner of Krause Funeral Homes
  • Colleen Galambos, professor of Applied Gerontology at UW-Milwaukee
