For many people, the constant changes of recommendations for staying safe and healthy during this pandemic has been a lot.

So to hopefully bring some clarity and comfort, we spoke with Alaska’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Anne Zink.

ATMI senior producer Quinn White talked to Dr. Zink about the ever-changing mitigation strategies around Covid, this new BA.2 variant, and how we might get out of this pandemic in a different way. 

They spoke on March 21st, 2022. 

Hosted by AJ Yambao.
