COVID-19 Press Conference – April 2: Governor takes questions from children in Rhode Island

Today’s press conference will be an opportunity for the Governor to take questions directly from Rhode Island’s kids. More than 13,000 students across the state submitted questions, and a selection of those questions will be read to the Governor by the First Gentleman. “We know this is a scary time for everyone – and in particular for kids – and the Governor wanted to take this opportunity to speak directly to kids across the state,” Audrey Lucas, Deputy Communications Director writes..

The Department of Health will be sending an update shortly on today’s new case numbers. There are no new policy announcements or initiatives at this time. The Governor will be back to her regularly scheduled daily press briefings at 1PM tomorrow.

Update – COVID-19 Daily Update – April 1: COVID-19 testing expanded to all symptomatic Rhode Islanders, 657 positive cases now in R.I.
