The U.S. is approaching its second Thanksgiving in the COVID-19 pandemic and cases are on the rise again.

The CDC reported that the seven-day daily average of new infections on Thursday was 88,482, an increase of 16.1% compared to the previous week.

Public health experts say that fully vaccinated families can enjoy a normal Thanksgiving together, and they urge those who have not yet received the vaccination to do so.

Disney is pausing its employee vaccination mandate under the new Florida law

Disney has suspended its COVID-19 vaccination mandate for employees at Walt Disney World in Orlando, the company confirmed to NPR on Sunday.

It comes under a new Florida law signed Thursday by Governor Ron DeSantis discourages employers from imposing COVID-19 vaccine mandates and gives workers the option to choose an exemption or opt for regular testing or the use of personal protective equipment.

“No one should lose their job due to stubborn COVID mandates, and we had a responsibility to protect the livelihoods of the Florida people,” DeSantis said.
