Just like earlier in the pandemic, thanks to the Delta variant, COVID cases and hospitalizations are way up. Although science tells us that masks & Vaccines do prevent community spread, the debate about both is still going strong- thanks to politics, misinformation, and bans on mask mandates.

Today, local and national health experts are here to field your calls and to explain where we are with the surge, vaccines, boosters, children, and more.

And Sebastian Bach, the original voice of the heavy metal band Skid Row recently shared that he has a breakout COVID case. He shares his experience with combating the virus and why the vaccine has saved him from the worst-case scenario.
