The swift, startling resurgence of Covid-19 across the U.S. is causing corporate leaders to rip up playbooks for the next few months. Current projections are that we will peak around Labor Day. Some employers have shifted return-to-office dates to October, while others now predict it will be 2022 until most workers return. A growing number of companies that already have restarted operations are requiring vaccines or masks. United Airlines on Friday became the first major airline to require employees be vaccinated this fall; Amazon and Tesla are rolling out mask mandates in certain places starting today. The Pentagon plans to mandate vaccination for all active duty military by mid-September. With some 56 million students expected back in classrooms this fall, the head of the nation’s second-largest teachers union said Sunday the organization would reconsider its stance on vaccine mandates this week. In Florida, hospitals are racing to find open beds as the Delta variant spreads. Highly vaccinated states are keeping the worst Covid-19 outcomes in check, a WSJ analysis shows.
This is probably what Florida Hospitals would look like if half of our population refused the polio vaccine.
