While COVID-19 continues to spread throughout most of the world, life is resuming a semblance of normalcy for some Americans, thanks to the miracle and privilege of available vaccines.
What now? What can we expect from this phase of the pandemic and a post-vax summer?
For today’s pandemic check-in, we first speak with Janel Heinrich (director) and Kat Grande (public health supervisor) from Public Health Madison and Dane County. They answer a host of questions about local case rates, vaccines, masks, and the Delta variant.
Then, Christine Whelan, UW–Madison professor and Chief Happiness Officer at Dear Pandemic, offers “Nerdy Girl” insight into navigating our emotions, finding joy, and spreading kindness at this stage of pandemic life.
