  • Rose Hughes, Executive Director of the Montana Health Care Association, on how long-term care facilities are balancing health safety measures with problems related to extended periods of isolation
  • Stephanie Stratton, Chief Programs Officer of the Montana Food Bank Network, on how increased demand and limited supplies are challenging the Montana food pantry system
  • Freelance journalist Amanda Eggert on how Montana's daycare industry and K-12 educational institutions are responding
  • MTFP reporter Eric Dietrich on the state of the State's budget in light of the pandemic (featuring dialogue from Republican state representatives Nancy Ballance and Frank Garner.)
