The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of our lives. The disruption of business, schools, and activities has been massive in Iowa, the US, and worldwide. And even as restrictions are being lifted or reduced, the threat of coronavirus is still very much present and very real in Eastern Iowa. It became all too real for a member of the KOKZ airstaff two weeks ago. Shawn Foxx became ill and after being tested, has been diagnosed with COVID and is currently hospitalized.
He decided to do this video to let you know of his struggles and to put a face on this virus. We thank Shawn for his willingness to share his story and most importantly hope he gets well soon so you can hear him back where he belongs on 105.7 KOKZ.
