  As the number of COVID-19 cases in the Y-K Delta surpasses 300 and community spread is confirmed in numerous villages, Alaska Public Health Nurses Tammy Kaboord and Donna Bean sit down with KYUK Wellness Producer Elyssa Loughlin to discuss the pandemic and how it is affecting listeners in the region.

This week, Elena Aluksak from the Child Advocacy Center (CAC) joins us for a conversation on child safety. Aluksak and callers discuss what the responsibilities of caretakers are in keeping children safe with regards to Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
