WGBH Executive Arts Editor Jared Bowen joined Boston Public Radio on Wednesday to give an update about how COVID-19 is affecting the arts community.

"All of the arts organizations right now are trying to figure out what is the most prudent thing to do and what the most responsible thing is to do," he said. "It's a really tough balance for the arts because they want to be mindful of public safety and people's health, but at the same time, if they have to end a production or cancel a performance, it could have seismic effects on their health as an organization."
