Yes, according to Rabbi Noam Marans and Pastor Jared Wellman, who join host Robin Young to talk about this year's unique challenges. Also, a 4-year-old Malayan tiger at the Bronx Zoo has tested positive for COVID-19, which officials deem as the first known instance of person to animal transmission of the virus. We talk with Dr. Paul Calle, the zoo's chief veterinarian. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's April 7, 2020, full broadcast.
