Hey yall

it's a Friday cornucopia of news today...

right now... @GovofCO giving us an update on the dial system...

this will be important for businesses around the state..

details below

Governor Polis notes a pretty sizeable uptick in daily case counts...

around 1800 today...

that's significant... but also could be result of increased testing.

also have now given more than a half million Coloradans at least one dose of COVID vaccine

(that's good news)
Governor starts off dial talk by noting "breaching hospital capacity" is critical...

(Why I always say HOSPITALIZATIONS are among the most critical metrics)

We have not breached it. So today we get Dial 2.0

"it's a more responsive dial"

Wanna walk you through this story @jennifermeckles and I worked on yesterday.

It involves a really nice guy by the name of Michael.

He's in his 70s. Eligible for the vaccine in Colorado. He actually got an appointment for a shot...

There was just one problem...
That appointment was abruptly canceled when a billing person with the medical provider learned he owed $243.85 for a previous and unrelated appointment.

He is a cancer patient. He needs this shot.

Instead, he got this email from a Boulder Medical Center patient account rep
Michael was miffed. So was his partner. She contacted us to see if this was right.

In essence, she thought, a medical provider was holding a vaccine in the middle of a pandemic as ransom...

Sure did seem that way. So we headed up to Longmont for an interview.
