Visitors enjoy Clearwater Beach, Wednesday, March 18, 2020, in Clearwater Beach, Fla. Beach goers are keeping a safe distance from each other to help protect from the spread of the Coronavirus.

Hundreds of thousands of college students are being told to leave their dorms amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

This means moving back in with Mom and Dad, being isolated from their friends and losing the freedom they’ve grown used to.

Some young people who are unhappy with government recommendations of social distancing are ignoring them and gathering in large groups as they did before.

Guests:

  • Saahil Desai, associate editor covering politics and policy, The Atlantic
  • Lee Riley, professor and chair, Division of Infectious Disease and Vaccinology at the University of California, Berkeley
  • Madison Mikhail Bush, founder and CEO, Point
