Coronavirus latest updates: Pentagon will mandate vaccination for all active-duty military personnel by mid-September

Here are some significant developments:

  • Florida and Louisiana reported covid-19 hospitalizations at all-time highs on Sunday, as current virus hospitalizations nationwide have soared past 68,000 — well past the peak of last summer’s Sun Belt surge.
  • Dallas city school officials said Monday that students and staff must wear masks in school buildings, defying an executive order by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) barring local governments from issuing mask or vaccine mandates.
  • Federally funded community health centers have administered nearly 14 million doses of coronavirus vaccines, including about 9 million doses to minority patients, the Biden administration is set to announce Monday.
  • The variant battle in the United States is over. Delta won.
