This is NSPR’s weekday show about the local and regional effects of COVID-19 in the North State. Listen each weekday at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 a.m. NSPR will continue this special coverage as long as our community needs it. Our mission with this show is to provide accurate news and information about COVID-19 for the North State.

Today, we’ll hear the latest regional and state news and then we’re focusing on the seasonality of this virus through a conversation with NSPR’s host of Blue Dot Dave Schlom and Dr. Kathryn Conlon, an assistant professor at the UC Davis School of Medicine Department of Public Health Sciences.

We’ll learn more about: if the virus is expected to wane in the summer? If there’s an expected resurgence? Whether more novel viruses are expected in a warming climate and how wildfire smoke that also causes respiratory issues might affect a resurgence?

If you have questions or comments let us know on our message line at 433-9216 or go to our website at

For Monday, April 27, 2020, This is special coverage from North State Public Radio.
