How To Have a Covid-19 Safe Holiday Season with Weber State, Do Your Part: Covid-19 Stories with Salt Lake County Health, HEAL Utah Warns About Decentivizing Solar Panels 

Tonight's Lineup:

Do your Part: A storytelling campaign to change the story on COVID-19 by putting a face and name to those directly affected by the dangerous virus with Nicholas Rupp, Communications & PR Manager, Salt Lake County Health Department. The following is a message from the Salt Lake County Health Department:

  • COVID-19 is a major health risk to everyone—even you. As case numbers surge in Utah, the stories are from people like you who have experienced the impact firsthand. Who are they? 

    • Families who couldn’t get the emergency medical services they needed for a loved one because rooms at the hospital were full
    • Doctors who are making choices today about prioritizing care for their patients
    • Exhausted nurses and healthcare workers trying to keep their colleagues and families healthy
    • Mothers who are still experiencing long-term health impacts from COVID like chronic fatigue, shortness of breath, and chest pain
    • Healthy adults who got COVID and were isolated and alone in a hospital bed

    The strategies to prevent COVID-19 infection are simple and effective. Be vigilant about avoiding confined or poorly ventilated spaces, washing your hands, and wearing a face covering and social distancing—even with people you love.

How To Stay Safe and Connected and Have a COVID Safe Holiday Season:

Dr. Kathleen Cadman, Assistant Professor at Weber State University, College of Health Professions, School of Nursing and Maddison Johnston, a recent graduate from the school of and postpartum nurse at Davis Hospital, talked about options for the different ways people might plan to spend the holidays and interact with friends and family.
