Reopening, Testing, Tracing: Q & A With Local Health Leaders


"Reopening" has begun across the country, including here at home. Businesses are beginning to open their doors, often with strict limits to continue blocking the spread of COVID-19.

Health officials fully expect to see the number of cases rise because more people will come in contact with each other. We continue our weekly visits with local health officers; Dr. Jim Shames from Jackson County Health and Human Services returns to answer questions about the virus, its transmission, and new developments in slowing its spread.
