Union urges NFL to adopt daily COVID-19 testing for vaccinated players

  Union urges NFL to adopt daily COVID-19 testing for vaccinated players There’s a decent chance that the COVID-19 pandemic will play more of a role during the 2021 NFL season than last year. We’re seeing relaxed protocols from the league as it relates to fully vaccinated players with Week 1 of the campaign slated to get going Thursday evening. It has already led to some COVID-related issues for teams. That includes star guard Zack Martin and the Dallas Cowboys with their opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers mere days away. Despite being fully vaccinated, Martin tested positive for the virus and will miss the game.NFLPA president JC Tretter of the Cleveland Browns touched on this recently.

The Covid - 19 pandemic remains at the top of voters ' minds, with about one-third saying it's the biggest issue for the state , according to a California exit poll conducted for CNN and other news networks by Edison Research.

California voters have been asked to vote on two questions: first, whether or not Newsom should be recalled and removed from office, and second, which candidate should replace him if he is. Elder has said he intends to sue the state over the vote count if he loses, echoing Trump’s legal tactics following the presidential election , and the Sacramento Bee first reported the candidate’s website already has a form for voter fraud claims that calls to investigate the election —phrased as if the election results had already been announced.

That's followed by just over one-fifth saying homelessness, 1 in 6 saying the economy and wildfires, respectively, and slightly under one-tenth saying crime. Concerns vary across partisan lines: more than 4 in 10 Democrats call coronavirus their top issue, while only about one-fifth of Republicans say the same. On the flip side, Republicans are more than three times as likely as Democrats to name the economy as their top concern.

California voters are heading to the polls on Sept. 14 to decide whether to remove Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom from office. Follow here for the latest news. If a majority of voters vote “yes” to the recall, he’ll be out of office and the top vote -getter on the ballot’s second question – about who should replace Newsom – will take over. The effort to oust Newsom, who was elected in 2018, was launched last year by conservative Californians critical of the governor's record on multiple issues .

One third of voters who cast their ballot in the U.S. election said the economy as their biggest concern, while two in 10 voters said COVID - 19 was their biggest concern, according to an exit poll from Edison Research, according to Reuters. Interestingly, 90 per cent of those polled said they’d chosen who they’d vote for prior to October. The poll breaks down several interesting issues : One in 10 Texas voters were first-time voters . Six in 10 Texas voters say climate change is a serious issue . There’s an even split among Texas voters about whether or not there should be a wall along the U.S

Voters have mixed outlooks on the pandemic's course in California, with about 4 in 10 saying the situation is getting better, 3 in 10 that it remains about the same, and just under one-quarter that it's worsening.

Women make up slightly more than half the electorate in the California recall, just as they did in the 2020 presidential election and the 2018 gubernatorial race. White majorities narrowly make up the majority of the electorate, the exit poll data finds, with the remainder people of color. In 2020 exit polling, about half the electorate was White; in 2018, it was 63%.

The California CNN Exit Poll is a combination of in-person interviews with Election Day voters and telephone and online polls measuring the views of absentee by-mail and early voters. It was conducted by Edison Research on behalf of the National Election Pool. In-person interviews on Election Day were conducted at a random sample of 30 California polling locations among 2,356 Election Day voters. The results also include 1,352 interviews with early and absentee voters conducted by phone, online or by text. Results for the full sample have a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points; it is larger for subgroups.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.

California voters: Less Republican and white than in 2003 .
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — It's a familiar refrain among California's recall watchers: 2021 is not 2003. Yes, the state again is in the middle of a recall election that could remove the Democratic governor from office. But today's California electorate looks far different than it did 18 years ago: It's less Republican, more Latino and Asian, and younger — all trends that favor Gov. Gavin Newsom, so long as he can get his voters to turn out. © Provided by Associated Press FILE— In this Aug. 9, 2021 file photo people walk along Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey, Calif. Sept. 14 is the last day California voters can cast their ballots to either keep California Gov.
