Star Tribune’s John Reinan Visits COVID Hotspot Wadena


Star Tribune State News Reporter John Reinan visited Wadena last week when the newest COVID statistics showed Wadena County as national hotspot.

Reinan is originally from Fergus Falls and handles a typically delicate topic very well.

His article, “In Minnesota hot spot, COVID has become a way of life“, touches on conversations with local business owners, medical professionals, and residents, and how COVID has impacted Wadena specifically. It’s a firsthand look at a nationwide story that essentially starts on our main street.

I’d encourage you to read it.

John was interviewed about his article and we will air the interview tomorrow, 11/23, on KWAD at 11:05am, but if you’d prefer, you can listen to it right here:
