Coming Friday: A coronavirus conversation with Dr. David Pate

It’s been a full — and unsettling — week of coronavirus headlines.

The Caldwell School District voted to require masks through mid-October.

Boise State University officials said a surge in cases jeopardizes in-person learning and campus events.

And Gov. Brad Little said he will call in the National Guard to help hospitals swamped with record COVID-19 patient loads.

This week, retired St. Luke’s health care system CEO Dr. David Pate (@drpatesblog) joins the Kevin Richert Podcast to talk about the delta variant, the health risks for kids, the response from school boards — and what we can expect in the weeks to come.

Check back every Friday for the podcast.
