Earlier in the day, a Lander City Council member painted a grim picture of the ongoing battle against the coronavirus at one of the hardest hit areas in the state.
“For all of the people that think they know better, for the doubters, for the conspiracy theorists, I tell you I’ve seen it with my own eyes and it’s real,” Councilman Cade Maeasta said.
