Colorado Edition: On The Rise In Routt County
Today on Colorado Edition: With COVID-19 cases on the rise in Routt County, we hear from their public health director about what’s leading to the increase in cases. We’ll also hear about the COVID-19 research that could be used in the future to help fight other diseases. Plus, we visit a Western town where some activists say police are getting things right, and we hear about a new museum here in the state that lets you get close with things that go bump in the night.
Today’s guests include: Roberta Smith, director of public health for Routt County; and Dan Mika, a reporter with BizWest. And today’s show features reporting from: The Mountain West News Bureau’s Nate Hegyi; and KUNC’s arts and culture reporter Stacy Nick.
