Compass for 10/10/20

After working pretty much without a break since February, when COVID-19 went pandemic, Jefferson County Public Health Officer Dr. Tom Locke decided to finally take a few days off at the beginning of October to go camping and cycling.  While he was away, the White House became the hottest COVID hot spot in the nation and the President himself was hospitalized for several days with the disease.  In this week’s Compass we talk with Dr. Locke immediately upon his return from his rest-break about the dangerous messaging coming from the top level of government as case numbers rise nation-wide, pointing towards a much-feared surge that could once again overwhelm our health care systems as we enter the cold months of the year.

The Compass airs Saturdays at noon and repeats on Mondays at noon and five pm.
