Connections: Will the pandemic convince Americans to move away from big cities?

Will the pandemic convince more Americans to live in the countryside, away from denser cities where the virus has spread more quickly? In the past week there has been a lot of discussion about COVID-19 and population density. New research finds that the disease is spreading through rural areas with significant speed, but of course the biggest caseloads are in cities like New York. So will this change the movement toward cities?

Our guests weigh in:

  • David Riley, planner and senior research associate for the Center for Governmental Research
  • Dr. Andy Aligne, M.D., associate professor of pediatrics at Golisano Children's Hospital at Strong
  • Howard Decker, architect and board member for the Community Design Center of Rochester
