Five on Friday: Officials Move to Protect Frontline Workers

Who’s fully vaccinated and ready to hug a friend (who is also fully vaccinated)? With about half of the US population over 16 years of age at least partially vaccinated against COVID-19, there are new possibilities for our weekends ahead. Please, as you plan for your vaccinated future, continue to wear masks and physically distance yourself while in public spaces – an important part of keeping COVID-19 infections low. Here are five pieces that we shared at MCN this week. What did you read this week that you recommend? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter.
