The numbers of COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations, and deaths are finally starting to come down from the holiday surge, whether that be locally or across the country. But still, the impact of the pandemic rages on, especially from an economic standpoint. Akron mayor Dan Horrigan joined the Ray Horner Morning Show for his weekly Thursday radio hit, and he talked about not just the slowing down of the numbers, but getting the economy and businesses to grow now that the curfew has been lifted and everything is largely opened. Horrigan says there should be another round of stimulus for the small businesses effected, and they continue to do what they can to support them. Horrigan also talked about the city services that may have suffered during the pandemic, though Akron seems to be better off than other parts of the country in the wintertime.
