Julie asks Sam if she recommends sequestering for the sake of her elderly family member because of our local COVID uptick. Plus:

-What's the current COVID situation here in Pennsylvania’s Susquehanna Valley?

-What’s going on at the local hospitals?

-Learn just how easy it is to pass COVID to your family when you think you're being safe.
