Starting Wednesday, Boulder County Public Health will host weekly COVID-19 updates to keep residents up to speed on the latest information about the virus in the county.

The first update will include an overview of the vaccine distribution plans and the local and state coronavirus outlook, a news release from Boulder County Public Health said.

“Information changes rapidly in this pandemic,” Boulder County Public Health Executive Director Jeff Zayach said in the release. “We hope these regular updates will help community members feel more informed about our county’s status each week, as well as give residents an opportunity to ask questions.”

Each meeting will start with an update from public health leadership. There will be a presentation from public health on “timely topics,” followed by any relevant local community update and will end with a Q&A portion for residents to ask questions to panelists, the agenda shows.

The virtual meetings will be at 3:30 p.m. Wednesdays. The meeting will be capped at 500 participants, but it also will be livestreamed on YouTube, the release said.
