On today’s episode of Colorado Edition, we look at the changing mask mandates in residential care facilities. Then, we learn how closing many Native American Reservations to visitors during the pandemic impacted tribal communities. Next, we hear how drought conditions are not only harmful to crops and livestock, but also to the mental health of agricultural workers. And, we dig into a last-minute billthat would offer Coloradans a deferment on paying some property taxes.

Today’s guests include Mountain West News Bureau reporter, Stephanie Serrano; KJSD news director, Lucas Brady Woods; and Colorado Sun reporter, Jesse Paul. Feature reporting from KUNC’s Investigative and Veterans Issues Reporter, Michael de Yoanna.
