the economy reopens:

    Israel started rolling back COVID-19 restrictions as it began to reopen the economy Sunday — with almost half of the country now vaccinated. Shops, museums, libraries and markets are now allowed to open to all Israelis following a two-month lockdown that began in late December. But only those who have been vaccinated will be able to go to gyms, pools, movie theaters and restaurants. They will have to show their “Green Pass,” which certifies they’ve received both doses of the vaccine at least a week prior. Israelis will be able to show their status with a vaccination certificate or by downloading a Health Ministry app linked to their medical files. The country has administered at least one dose of the Pfizer vaccine to more than 46 percent of its 9 million population, officials said. In addition to reopening swaths of the economy, most grade and high schools have also been...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Health officials in a San Francisco Bay Area county that was among the most aggressive in the nation in shutting down its economy to slow the spread of the coronavirus are warning of “worrisome” growing infections as California on Tuesday reported its highest daily infection rate to date and hospitalizations from the virus increase. The state Department of Public Health recorded more than 5,000 new cases Tuesday, putting the total number of positive cases at more than 183,000. The state has seen more than 5,500 deaths related to COVID-19. The record-setting numbers and warnings come as more businesses reopen statewide, spurred by antsy residents weary over stay-at-home and social distancing orders. San Francisco, which was part of the Bay Area’s strict order in mid-March, plans to allow outdoor bars, nail and hair salons and tattoo shops to open next week. Health officers say they...
    Weekly jobless claims data shows 1.51 million people filed new unemployment claims for the week of June 13, a decline from the previous week but still staggeringly high as the coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc on the economy.  The latest figure from the Labor Department marked the 11th straight weekly decline in applications since they peaked at nearly 7 million in March, as the coronavirus shut down much of the economy and caused tens of millions of layoffs. The decline was much smaller, though, than in recent weeks, falling just 58,000. The total number of people receiving unemployment aid also fell slightly, reflecting the return of many to their old jobs. A second wave of layoffs amid weak demand and fractured supply chains is likely keeping new U.S. applications for unemployment benefits elevated, supporting views that the economy faces a long and difficult recovery from the COVID-19.  Thousands...

Employers added 2.5 million jobs last month, and the unemployment rate declined from 14.7% to a still-high 13.3%. In addition, shoppers increased their...
