The latest on COVID-19, CDC communication, and why some TV shows are putting the pandemic in the past

Tony Spinelli/Connecticut Public
COVID test kits and masks are handed out to Wallingford residents in the parking lot of the Oakdale Theater on January 4, 2022. The Wallingford Health Department held the Home Covid Test Kit and N-95 Mask distribution event along with the Wallingford Fire Department. The WPD assisted with distribution. One kit per car was allowed with proof of residency.

This hour, we discuss COVID-19: from the latest science, to communication about the virus, and its depiction on television.
