Colorado Edition: Hit Hardest

Leigh Paterson

Today on Colorado Edition: We speak with Larimer County’s public health director about the county’s new variance from state COVID-19 restrictions. We’ll also hear the first part in a series focusing on the disproportionate impact of the pandemic on Weld County’s Hispanic communities. Plus, we’ll learn about a newly developed COVID test that uses modern scratch-and-sniff technology, and we’ll get some winter book recommendations.

Today’s guests include: Tom Gonzales, public health director for the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment; John Ingold, a writer at the Colorado Sun; and Megan Szmyd with Old Firehouse Books in Fort Collins. Today’s show features reporting from KUNC’s Adam Rayes, who covers rural and small communities.
