In Larimer County, hospitals are hitting max capacity as COVID-19 and the Delta variant surge through the community. As a result, Public Health Director Tom Gonzales is encouraging residents to get vaccinated. He joins Colorado Edition to talk about what the pandemic is looking like there, and how his approach to combating the virus has evolved.

As host of KUNC's Colorado Edition, I work closely with our producers and reporters to bring context and diverse perspectives to the important issues of the day. And because life is best when it's a balance of work and play, I love finding stories that highlight culture, music, the outdoors, and anything that makes Colorado such a great place to live.
As a producer for Colorado Edition, I pitch segment ideas, pre-interview guests, craft scripts and cut audio. I also write tweets, build web posts and occasionally host.
