KZMU News: Friday July 3, 2020

By July 3, 2020 No Comments

Today on the news, we speak with Grand County Council Chair Mary McGann about a local face covering order, which she and her colleagues will consider for a vote on Tuesday. She hopes mandating face coverings will help protect Moab’s employees who regularly interact with the public. Health experts have noted the importance of wearing a mask when social distancing is difficult, especially because presymptomatic and asymptomatic individuals could spread COVID-19 to others. And later, local demonstrations in support of Black Lives Matter continue in our region. 

Plus (13:00), we round out the week with Doug McMurdo, editor of The Times-Independent. He discusses some of their top stories, including Grand County’s desire to mandate face coverings locally, a man’s guilty plea to two counts of manslaughter in the car crash that killed a local father and son, primary election results in the Utah Governor’s race, and Eklecticafe closing its doors.
