As local public health officials end mask mandates across the state, many school districts are following suit. Many districts are also stopping COVID-19 contact-tracing policies. Last week, health officials said that schools could soon treat the virus as a routine disease, like flu or norovirus.

Erica Meltzer is bureau chief at Chalkbeat Colorado. She has been following changing COVID-19 protocols in schools, and joins us for an update on the approaches Colorado districts are taking.

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.
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.
