When Covid:

    On Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Cavuto Live,” Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) stated that when the money in the most recent coronavirus relief bill enters the system and “we get the teachers vaccinated,” we’ll see schools re-open. Dingell said, “We’ve had to get the teachers vaccinated. Has anybody really thought about what it’s like to re-open these schools, the requirements for PPE equipment, if you have a bus, you can’t load the bus the way that you used to. So, you’ve got to use extra personnel, when you’re in — what you have to do in the bathrooms, what you have to do to keep the school clean? Increased cost to these schools.” She added, “I think that when this money goes into the system, we’re going to start to — and we get the teachers vaccinated, and we’re doing things, we are going to see the schools...
    NEW YORK (WABC) -- New York's new coronavirus-era dance rules aren't exactly "Footloose" strict, but don't plan on cutting loose and kicking off the Sunday shoes with just anybody.The state says that when wedding receptions resume next month, guests will be allowed to hit the dance floor only with members of their immediate party, household or family seated at the same table.Even then, the rules say, dancers must wear face masks and stay within their own "dancing areas or zones" - spaces that should be at least 36 square feet (3.3 square meters) in size and positioned at least 6 feet (2 meters) apart from other dance zones and tables.There's no switching dance zones, either.Happy couples can still take a twirl for a ceremonial first dance, and other couples can join in, but they must all stay 6 feet apart.Live music performers and other entertainers are allowed, but if they're...
    When Ruperto Robles, 60, came down with COVID-19 early last month, he spent days with fever, muscle aches and fatigue, isolated from others at the Yuba County Jail. Robles is being held there by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, facing deportation. An uncle and cousin in Mexico died of complications from COVID-19. With diabetes and high blood pressure, Robles worried it could lead to his death, too. “I would like to get the vaccine to block the possibility of getting sick again,” he said. “It’s sad to see on television how many people are dying from the coronavirus.” Advocates for immigrants say state and federal officials have waffled over who is responsible for vaccinating the roughly 1,500 detainees in the care of ICE. ICE spokesperson Alexx Pons said in a statement that the number of vaccine doses needed for detainees was reported to Department of Homeland Security...

    For as long as the COVID-19 pandemic has been present people have been asking - when will life get back to normal? On Thursday, Feb. 18, Dr. Anthony Fauci made a prediction on when Americans’ jobs and social lives may return to a semblance of pre-pandemic normalcy.

The idea that life will return to “normal” is a little misleading, though, Fauci noted. What we'll most...

    Politicians and political commentators mocked President Biden for a gaffe Tuesday when he said "we didn't have" the COVID-19 vaccine when he came into office. Biden made the slip-up during a CNN town hall with host Anderson Cooper.

There was also minimal follow-up on his responses.    The 75-minute town hall hosted...

Cuomo joined a bipartisan group of mayors and governors in the Oval Office on Friday for a meeting on COVID 19 relief for states and cities. But the topic of the delayed release of data on COVID-19 deaths in the state's nursing homes didn't come up. Many New York Democrats have criticized Cuomo on the issue.  'The focus of the meeting was on the president providing an update on his plans to help get the pandemic under control,' White House press secretary Jen Psaki said at her briefing on Tuesday in response to a question from DailyMail.com, 'so no that was not a focus of their conversation or a topic.'

    EFE Latam Videos Guaidó, a leap into the void Caracas, Feb 15 (EFE) .- It has been more than two years since the opposition Juan Guaidó got on a platform to announce that it was he, and not Nicolás Maduro, the president of Venezuela. A pulse began that, at some point, seemed to put his rival against the ropes. He bet everything, but today, from that voracious fire, there are hardly any embers left, in a country dominated by Chavismo. As his image fades, he continues to scream, increasingly alone, that he is everything, while stubborn reality returns an echo that comes from the national and international community, and replies “nothing”, an answer that seems to be refusing to accept. “GUAIDÓ IS FINISHED” The risky strategy, bordering the limits of the Constitution, led to put the dispute in what the internationalist and expert in Latin American politics Dimitris Pantoulas described...

    Dear Moneyist, Due to the 2020 global pandemic my wife and I have been concerned about indoor exposure to others. We are fortunate enough that we can work from home so we are always here, and no one else is allowed in our home. Because of this, we have tried to make arrangements to be out of the house when our housekeeper comes to clean. This isn’t always possible so over the year, we asked that she skip cleaning our house on the days when we were home. Understanding that times are tough, we have continued to send her payment for the weeks where we asked her to stay home. My question is this: Because we gave her money but no work was done, should she consider this income or a gift? While it doesn’t change my taxes any, it would definitely affect hers. Would it help...

    Students as young as first grade might be able to get vaccinated against COVID-19 by September, White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci predicted in an interview published by ProPublica on Thursday. Fauci cited clinical trials now underway in the U.S. from vaccine developers Pfizer and Moderna to test the safety and efficacy of the doses in children. He had said previously that the Food and Drug Administration might allow for vaccinations in American children "by the time we get to the late spring and early summer."  So far, except for a handful of errors, the nationwide vaccine rollout has not included children. Based on the initial research submitted by Pfizer, the FDA authorized use of that vaccine for recipients ages 16 and up. Moderna's shots are authorized for ages 18 and up. Now, Fauci said in the interview, "We're in the process of starting clinical trials in what we...

I waited for three days for it to come back, at home with my family. I already didn’t feel well, and then everybody started acting like I was going to kill them.

    By Tom Randall | Bloomberg When will the pandemic end? It’s the question hanging over just about everything since COVID-19 took over the world last year. The answer can be measured in vaccinations. Bloomberg has built the biggest database of COVID-19 shots given around the world, with more than 119 million doses administered worldwide. U.S. science officials such as Anthony Fauci have suggested it will take 70% to 85% coverage of the population for things to return to normal. Bloomberg’s Vaccine Tracker shows that some countries are making far more rapid progress than others, using 75% coverage with a two-dose vaccine as a target. Israel, the country with the highest vaccination rate in the world, is headed for 75% coverage in just two months. The U.S. will get there just in time to ring in the 2022 New Year (though North Dakota could get there six months sooner than Texas). With vaccinations...

That’s kind of a lesson I’ve learned in Washington. She is a powerful and fierce force up there,” Psaki responded. “We’re not going to set a timeline from here....

    Dear Moneyist, My sisters and I disagree on most things, but never could I have imagined how our relationship would end. My parents put me down as the trustee and power of attorney for both their health care and finances in 1985, again in 2002 when they created a trust, and once again in 2014 when they updated the trust, and their various codicils since then. I am the oldest child, and I have also been the one responsible for them. I helped them with moving, I cleaned their house, and I took off work and cared for them when they were ill. My sisters were what I call “armchair” daughters. They yelled and screamed their opinions from their lazy boys, but they never actually helped on any level. After some difficult memory issues with my mom, she and I agreed to move her into assisted living in...

    Los Angeles County residents eagerly awaiting their second dose of COVID-19 vaccines should keep an eye on their email, officials said this week. Those who rolled up their sleeves at a county-run vaccination site will receive a direct message allowing them to confirm the necessary follow-up appointments, according to the county’s Department of Public Health.
