Colorado Edition: Light At The End Of The Tunnel
The first shipment of COVID-19 vaccines arrived in Colorado Monday morning. We look at the excitement surrounding their arrival, and the distribution challenges that lie ahead. We’ll hear how state officials are reconsidering plans to close the state’s three alternate care sites in January, and learn more about a new statewide effort to boost contact tracing capacity. We’ll also hear about Colorado’s nine electors casting their votes in the 2020 presidential election. And finally, we get some tips from a competitive snow sculptor about how to take your snowman to the next level.
Today’s guests include: Matt Bloom, reporter for KUNC; Jennifer Brown, reporter for the Colorado Sun; Sarah Hamma, deputy director for COVID Containment at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment; Scott Franz, Capitol Coverage reporter for KUNC; and Steve Mercia, competitive snow sculptor and founder of the Berthoud Snowfest.
