Coronavirus cases in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta have risen dramatically in the past two weeks, with 126 new cases between Oct. 1 and Oct. 14. The Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation is urging everyone to stop gathering with people outside their households to slow the spread of the virus. To talk more about the state of the pandemic in the region and what you can do to help, KYUK talks with YKHC Chief of Staff Dr. Ellen Hodges and YKHC Vice President of Communications Tiffany Zulkosky. Our conversation was recorded Oct. 14.
