Wednesday, April 8, 2020

Mayor Vi Lyles shares information on how the city is coping with the most serious outbreak of COVID-19 in the state. Have questions for her? Let us know at charlottetalks@wfae.org.

Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles joins us for our April edition of "Mike and the mayor." 

Charlotte and Mecklenburg County have the dubious distinction of having the highest number of coronavirus cases in the state. 

We talk about what the city is doing in terms of emergency management, about plans to help small businesses survive forced closures during the pandemic, and about what we’re doing for the homeless who can’t comply with stay-at-home orders. 

Mayor Lyles addresses all that plus public transportation and the Republican National Convention.

Guests:

Vi Lyles, mayor of Charlotte

Robert Graham, deputy director of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Emergency Management
