In the Hive

Inequitable exposure to air pollution in local schools, and the data on pandemic air quality


This week on In the Hive, a new study from the University of Utah highlights unequal exposure to air pollution for school children in predominantly minority and low income schools in Salt Lake County. We hear from the lead author of that study. Plus, the data shows that across our region the pandemic has improved our air quality. But will the lessons from this difficult moment in history help us do better in the future?
