Over the weekend, information was put out by the CDC on the spread of COVID-19 through the air, which confused some in the medical and science community, as well as the general public. This information was walked back a little.

Dr. Hazel Barton is a microbiologist at the University of Akron, and she talked on the Ray Horner Morning Show about the airborne spread of COVID-19 and how long it may stay in the air. She, as well as other public health officials, discourages social gatherings, and urges folks to not get complacent as the weather cools down and most are stuck inside.

Dr. Barton also touched on the possibility of a COVID-19 vaccine, which could be available for the most vulnerable population as early as the end of 2020.
