Local elected officials are hearing a lot right now from their citizens – and the pressure is on. The pressure of slashed budgets and an economic downturn, the pressure of facing a pandemic with rural infrastructure. We speak to Moab Mayor Emily Niehaus today, who explains how elected leaders are attempting to buffer the community from the worst of COVID-19, while feeling its impacts on a personal and professional level. Plus, our weekly check in with Jen Sadoff, CEO of Moab Regional Hospital, who has updates on testing and preparedness. And later, news from the Navajo Nation – Doctors Without Borders, community response, and international aid.
