  Coming up on The Exchange . . .

We talk with Sioux City Community Schools Superintendent Paul Gausman about the liklihood of online commencements for graduation seniors at Sioux City's three high schools because of COVID-19, and how the district is trying to prepare students to come back to the classroom in the fall. 

We hear from local business owners who are trying to keep the doors open despite the general shutdown caused by the coronavirus.  Some applied for federal stimulus money and are still waiting to hear about their status.
