The U.S. Has Passed Its Delta Peak — With More Vaccine Rules Coming

Description

Cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are all on the decline in the U.S. — with September marking a turning point in the delta surge.

Vaccination rates continue to tick up and will be helped along by more workplace vaccine rules, including one from the Department of Labor. That rule, which has yet to be released, will be enforced by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. NPR's Andrea Hsu reports on the small agency with a big task.

Vaccine rules have been implemented successfully at big companies like United Airlines and Novant Health, where the vast majority of employees have gotten their shots. But in smaller workplaces, vaccine rules present a different challenge. Katia Riddle reports from Malheur County, Oregon.

In participating regions, you'll also hear a local news segment that will help you make sense of what's going on in your community.
