Coronavirus in Colorado, June 21: A look at the latest updates on COVID-19

In a pandemic, Father’s Day looks a lot different than in other years. Our reporter, John Wenzel, writes that “this year feels less like a celebration and more like a quick back rub before I return to the ring.”

Around the country, states like Arizona are reporting large spikes in coronavirus cases as businesses open back up and restrictions are lifted. Many experts agree that the U.S. is still in its first wave of COVID-19 cases with the threat of another looming over plans for the fall.

In Colorado, cases have surpassed 30,000 with 1,429 deaths directly caused by the new virus.
