WBFO Brief May 13, 2021

Today’s WBFO Brief features Jay Moran’s usual Thursday chat about COVID-19 with Dr. Nancy Neilsen M.D. this time with information on vaccine resistance even at younger ages. In a related story, you can learn how in-person instruction in Williamsville is the big issue in this year’s school board elections.

From our Older Adults news desk, as Gov. Cuomo waits to sign a bill on minimum nursing home staffing levels, hear how it’s being received badly by people on both sides of the debate. Also, learn what’s it like to use a ballot marker when you vote and hear about a forum on ballot access issues set for tonight. And look ahead to September’s Buffalo Bills schedule and the possibility of vaccinated/not vaccinated seating sections at Buffalo Bills games.
