Thousands gathered for a three-day country music festival in western Colorado in late June. Cases of the delta variant of the coronavirus are spreading quickly in the area, but the public health department said that, by the time the risk had become clear, it was too late to cancel Country Jam.

The CDC sent in a team to investigate a delta variant hotspot in Mesa County, Colo. That didn’t stop tens of thousands of people from flocking to the state’s largest country music festival.
