The Detroit Auto Show, originally scheduled for June 2020, has been canceled to make room for a field hospital being set up at the TCF Center.

Today on Stateside, it's hard to keep up with the daily rush of news about COVID-19 in Michigan. We talk with two reporters about some stories you might have missed.  Plus, writer Desiree Cooper offers perspective and advice about coping with uncertainty and loss.
