COVID-19: Under Same Local and New Federal Management

Andrew Noymer, UCI Epidemiologist, professor in population health, disease prevention and public health, returns to the show for the full hour. Always the straight-shooting font of information, Andrew offers his hot takes and useful leads on COVID vaccines, the new national leadership, and the seasonality of this virus. If only what he says could be mounted on a banner to be flown up and down Orange County’s beaches and beyond. Pro tip folks – we’re wearing masks even after we’ve been vaccinated.
Music credits: Greg Foat, “Symphonie Pacifique;” Franz Schubert’s Fantasie in F minor, performed by Lucas and Arthur Jussen.
