On this week's Valley Edition: Thousands of migrant workers come to California each year to do temporary labor in the Valley and send money back to their families. What has the pandemic been like for them? We go to Delano to talk to some workers from Mexico who have been living in a hotel for the past four months. 

 And, we speak with four registered nurses who work in ICUs throughout the San Joaquin Valley about the toll of treating COVID-19 patients over the last year. 

 

Plus, the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office is facing ongoing litigation surrounding its response to the pandemic in the county jail. Listen to these stories and more in the podcast above.
