ENCORE: How Idaho Families Are Dealing With Life At Home During The Coronavirus

Vanessa Fry
The Fry family broadcasts their daily "ninja warrior warm-ups" to get ready for the day.



This interview originally aired April 9, 2020.


Overnight, the coronavirus turned us parents into teachers, responsible for facilitating our kids’ education while also working from home ourselves. This has not been easy. But, there are moments of joy in the challenges. 

Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve asked you, the listeners, to send us audio of how your family is dealing with being cooped up at home.

We want to share some of these stories with you. Then, host Gemma Gaudette interviews a very special guest: her second-grader Joey. 

As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
