In mid-March, nursing home owner Tyson Belanger decided to take a unique approach to prevent the spread of COVID-19: offering staff up to $20,000 a month to move into RVs he rented and placed on site. Belanger talks to host Robin Young about his plan and how other facilities could make it work. Also, beaches in Los Angeles reopened after closing to the public for social distancing. As Memorial Day draws closer, beaches are looking at how to reopen. We talk with retired lifeguard Gus Avila, who serves as president of the United States Lifesaving Association.
