50 First Mandates

What A Day - July 27, 2021 - 19:10

Federal public health officials are considering updating mask mandates even for vaccinated Americans as we reach another critical point in the pandemic. But some localities are going above and beyond that with vaccine mandates. New York City, for example, will require all city employees to be vaccinated, and California announced a vaccine requirement for all state employees and health care workers, too. Private businesses like United Airlines and Morgan Stanley have also started to mandate vaccination for employees. Then in cities like L.A., San Francisco, and New York, many bars and live events require customers to show proof of vaccination.And in headlines: Biden formally announces the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq, a tobacco company wants to ban cigarettes, and Kanye will stay in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium until his album is finished.Show Notes:NYT: “Where Covid-19 Hospitalizations Are Rising in the U.S.” – https://nyti.ms/3BGSWiSPC Mag: “How to Carry Your Vaccination Card on Your Phone” – https://bit.ly/3zBB0nYFor a transcript of this episode, please visit crooked.com/whataday
