Constant squealing noise while moving

Hi all! This is my first post, but I've been lurking here for a while.

Today I drove over a speed bump and heard a metallic noise, followed by an extremely loud screeching noise. It was so loud that I did not think it was my car at first, it took me a moment to realize where it was coming from. The noise sounds like it's coming from the front end of the vehicle, and it happens anytime the car is moving. The volume level and the tone varies a bit sometimes, but the noise is there anytime it's in motion regardless of whether I'm accelerating, coasting, braking, or in neutral. Speed is irrelevant, I got it up to 60 and the noise continued. I plan to take it to a mechanic tomorrow, but I'm looking for some insight first as today is Sunday and the nearest VW dealer that's willing to touch an electric car is over an hour away from me.

Thanks in advance for any ideas on what this may be.
It may be worth checking whether you have the dust shield rubbing on the rotor.
