  • On Good Things Utah Hour 2 this morning – It’s time to go out for takeout! We’ll tell you why Dr. Anthony Fauci thinks getting takeout from local restaurants is actually your ‘neighborly obligation’. And when it comes to getting takeout, would you be okay paying a COVID-19 surcharge? Restaurants are getting backlash across the country for charging an extra 5 percent for things like cleaning supplies, and food prices that are on the rise because of the pandemic.
  • Plus, it’s the second episode of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City tonight. We have what to expect from the ladies in Utah who are now making a big splash across the country.
  • And in our Parenting Moment this morning, it’s the sweet story of an elementary school teacher in Iowa who was used to hugging her students every morning. She says since the pandemic she has felt disconnected with all the changes in her classroom. Well we absolutely love what she came up with – a different kind of personalized greeting for each student. We have the sweet video of each one of the kids entering her classroom. Hope you join us for this feel good story and so much more on the second hour of GTU.
