Good Morning Truckee presents COVID updates, Pilots N Paws and the Humane Society

Tuesday, Feb. 9, Good Morning Truckee will present a series of quick COVID updates and information from Tahoe Forest Hospital, Sierra Small Business Development Center (SBDC), and Tahoe Truckee Unified School District (TTUSD). Additionally, there will be a presentation from Pilots N Paws animal rescue transportation program and an update from the Humane Society of Truckee Tahoe.
