    Do we know how many children in our kid's school have Covid?

Her guests this week include Kathy Nelson with Salt Lake County Aging and Adult Services, Crystal Young, Executive Director of the Utah Cultural Alliance and Liz Sollis, Associated Director of Community Engagement for Salt Lake County Parks and Recreation.
