2. Can Your Employer Require You to Get a COVID-19 Vaccine?
3. Post-Pandemic Anxiety Is a Real Issue—Here’s How to Get More Comfortable During Re-Openings

A nasal spritz of a designer antibody offers strong protection against variants of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 — at least in mice. (J. Harris: a repeat, sort of.)
