GOT VIRUS?
"Should we and our children be vaccinated?" ask organizers of the Free Thought Forum. "Absolutely!" Of course, you can't talk about this in person, so FTF offers a weekly online forum on subjects of moral philosophy, healthy living, and science "to improve the cohesion, health, and scientific literacy of our society." It's up to you to decide how much these public discussions improve your now-solitary lives. This week, Vaccines, Outbreaks, and Epidemiology will lead you in with 45 minutes about the subject, a break time and then an hour for an open forum. Warning: You have to be respectful of other people's thoughts and not comment on the people themselves. Sunday, April 12, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Free, online-group text: https://discord.gg/ueN5jE4; Online Group (voice):https://discord.gg/gRgtPY7; Group Page:https://www.freethoughtforum.org/online-group; Free, https://bit.ly/39zCyRT.

PANDEMIC IMPACT
The Southern Utah Wilderness Association has been examining how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting rural Utah, specifically residents and healthcare workers in the popular but now abandoned public land gateway towns like Moab and Boulder. In their current episode of Wild Utah, Stay Home, Save Lives: Coronavirus in Southern Utah, Dr. Dylan Cole, chief medical officer at Moab Regional Hospital, and Blake Spalding, chef/owner of Hell's Backbone Grill in Boulder, discuss "why staying at home this spring—and away from our favorite redrock destinations—is crucial to keeping Utah's rural communities safe from the spread of COVID-19."
