This week on In the Hive, the continuation of last week’s conversation about homelessness in northern Utah. Host Roger McDonough sits down with Salt Lake City mayor Erin Mendenhall to get her thoughts on the outsized role Utah’s capitol city plays in providing services for those who find themselves without shelter.

Plus, an infectious disease specialist talks about what we know (and what we don’t yet know) about the Omicron variant of the coronavirus. One thing we do know? It’s coming — and soon.

Guests:
Erin Mendenhall, Mayor of Salt Lake City
Dr. Sankar Swaminathan, infectious disease specialist with University of Utah Hospital
