  • On the second hour of Good Things Utah this morning – More women than men say they are worse off financially now one year into the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new ABC News-Washington Post poll. A quarter of women polled say their family’s financial situation is worse today than before the pandemic-related shutdowns of schools and offices began in March 2020, compared to 18% of men, according to the poll, released this week. More than 2 million women left the workforce in 2020.
  • Plus, are summer camps safe this year? The good news is that for summer camp 2021, things are looking up and, despite necessary safety measures, there’s room for fun. “It’s still going to be summer camp and COVID-19,” Tom Rosenberg, ACA president and CEO told TODAY Parents. “Modifications will still be necessary to operate safely.” The good news is that new research shows that camps can operate safely as long as they follow the best practices that we learned from last summer.
