WilmingtonBiz Talk: COVID Update And Parent Coping Tips

By Vicky Janowski, posted Jan 20, 2022

This week’s BizTalk included special double discussion about the latest spike in COVID cases.

First up Thursday was an update from health officials. Infectious disease physician Paul Kamitsuka and county public health assistant director Carla Turner shared the latest numbers locally, whether omicron is showing signs of peaking, testing supplies and other issues.

With the variant impacting school classrooms and child-care settings, we also talked with special guest from WILMA, the Business Journal’s sister publication, to discuss the continued concerns – and possible coping tips – for working parents. Audrey Goodson Kingo, former editor in chief of WorkingMother.com, spearheaded the brand’s book, The Working Mother Ultimate Guide to Working from Home.

View the full BizTalk conversation below. Also listen to this and future weekly WilmingtonBiz Talk discussions on the Business Journal's podcast, available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Stitcher.


BizTalk is livestreamed on the Business Journal's Facebook page each week, typcially at noon Thursday. For notifications on upcoming topics, sign up for newsletters at wilmingtonbiz.com/register and to submit topic or speaker ideas, email [email protected].
