Judge denies motion to dismiss mask mandate lawsuit in St. Louis County

Judge denies motion to dismiss mask mandate lawsuit in St. Louis County

ST. LOUIS– A St. Louis County Circuit Court judge denied a motion by St. Louis County to dismiss a lawsuit over its mask mandate. Judge Nellie Ribaudo also denied the motion to dissolve the preliminary injunction and a motion to stay discovery.

The Missouri Attorney General’s office filed a lawsuit against St. Louis County earlier this year over its mask mandate.

“The people of St. Louis County scored another win as the Court denied the County’s motions to dismiss our case and dissolve the Preliminary Injunction, which remains in place,” said Attorney General Eric Schmitt in a press release. “There is no mask mandate in St. Louis County, and I will continue to lead this important fight on behalf of the people of Missouri.”

In the latest court order, Judge Nellie Rubiado says had the St. Louis County Council had issued a new public health order with the approval of the Council perhaps the issues might have been moot but as the Council chose to extend the July 26 Face Covering Order instead the issue is not moot.

Here is a timeline of events for the mask mandate:

  • St. Louis County Executive Dr. Sam Page issued a mask mandate on July 26. It required anyone five and older to wear masks in indoor public places and on public transportation.
  • On July 27, the county council voted five to two to revoke that mask mandate saying Page should have come to them first and that state law gives them the power to override public health orders.
  • Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt sued the county calling the mask mandate unconstitutional. Judge Ribaudo sided with Schmitt stopping the order from being enforced.
  • St. Louis County asked the judge to lift her order and throw out Schmitt’s lawsuit after the county council expressed support for the mask mandate on Aug. 27.
  • On Sept. 20, Judge denies St. Louis County motion to dismiss lawsuit over mask mandate as well as motion to dissolve the preliminary injunction.

The court set the next Preliminary Injunction Hearing for October 18 at 10 A.M.

Colorado’s gold medalist volleyball players aim to inspire state’s next generation

Colorado’s gold medalist volleyball players aim to inspire state’s next generation

The first indoor volleyball Olympic gold medal in U.S history was a Colorado accomplishment.

Last month, in the championship round from Tokyo, two-of-six Americans on the floor to clinch the final match point over Brazil were in-state products: setter Jordyn Poulter (Eaglecrest ‘14) and outside hitter Haleigh Washington (Doherty ‘13).

Both gold medalists returned to Colorado in recent weeks to celebrate at their home schools in hopes of inspiring the state’s next generation of volleyball players.

“Haleigh and I are both so grateful we get to come from a state that isn’t necessarily as big volleyball-wise comparatively to some of the midwestern states,” Poulter said. “To have two of us out of the 12 on a roster for an entire country, to represent Colorado, that’s extremely special. We’re really proud to come from the Rocky Mountain region community for girls’ indoor volleyball.”

Washington, as told to CHSAANow.com, added: “Often in life, especially after everything with COVID, people get really anxious and really nervous. That whole idea of being present really resonated with me so I wanted to say to that to the girls.”

Their success comes as little surprise to Jim Miret, the longtime head coach at Front Range Volleyball Club based in Englewood where Poulter is an alum.  Miret said that Colorado — unlike California or Texas — might not be considered a traditional hotbed for youth volleyball development. But plenty of in-state products have gone on to do big things.

“We definitely have a pretty good number of Division-I players coming out of Colorado depending on the year,” Miret said. “We’ve always got between two and five top kids going to really good Division-I programs.”

The stars were on display in last year’s Class 5A final between Grandview and Rampart with at least three major Division I signees: Addison O’Grady (Iowa basketball), Riley Simpson (Baylor volleyball) and Anjelina Starck (Penn State volleyball). Colorado’s elite club programs have also gained widespread recognition. Poulter played for Front Range 18 Black in 2014 when it was ranked No. 11 in the nation.

“Maybe at first glance people might not think of (Colorado) as a hotbed, but there is actually a lot of really great activity in the world of volleyball,” U.S. women’s indoor volleyball coach Karch Kiraly told The Denver Post. “It’s not that much of a surprise.”

The sport’s popularity across the country has soared in the past decade, according to the annual NFHS participation survey, with volleyball surpassing basketball as the second-most played sport among high school girls.

Aspiring volleyball Olympians from Colorado now have an example to follow.

“Haleigh and I were exactly where a lot of those girls were. We were in those shoes,” Poulter said. “I hope that it’s in inspiration and a little bit more within your grasp to see that someone from a situation very similar can achieve their dreams of going to the Olympics and winning a gold medal.”

Three men who targeted, robbed over 70 Asian women in the Bay Area have been charged

Published

on

Bay Area robberies suspects caught

On Friday, the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office filed charges against three men connected to a series of robberies that targeted over 70 Asian women across the Bay Area.

The details: Derje Blanks, 23, and Anthony Robinson, 24, were arrested on Sept. 8, according to CBS San Francisco. While attempting to flee the authorities, Robinson reportedly injured a 2-year-old child and the child’s father in a car collision.

  • The third suspect, Cameron Moody, 27, was arrested in Union City on Friday. The arrest concluded a multi-jurisdictional investigation that was launched in late 2020.
  • Robinson allegedly told police after his arrest that the “age of the people [he] was taking things from did not matter as long as they were Asian,” NBC Bay Area reported.
  • The third suspect, Cameron Moody, 27, was arrested in Union City on Friday. Their arrest concluded a multi-jurisdictional investigation that was launched in late 2020.
  • The crime spree, which included robberies and purse snatching, was committed throughout San Jose, San Pablo, Hayward, East Palo Alto, Newark, San Leandro, Fremont, Campbell, Dublin and Milpitas.
  • Evidence collected showed that the defendants targeted the victims based on their race as they “believed that Asian women don’t use banks” and only carried cash, with Robinson allegedly telling police, “Asian people do not use banks, all I’m gonna say.” They also allegedly used derogatory slurs while referring to their targets, SF Gate reported.
  • The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office charged the suspects with over 70 counts of felony robbery with additional hate crime enhancements. Robinson is being held without bail, while Blank’s bail was set to $500,000. Moody is set to appear in court this week.

Their M.O.: The suspects would allegedly followed the same method during their crime spree, where they would wait for their female victims to get inside their vehicle, open the car’s door or smash the windows, and then take their purses.

  • Security footage released by the SJPD showed the suspects snatching a purse from a woman’s car. 
  • The DA’s office said some of the victims suffered injuries from the incidents as the suspects “pulled or wrestled to the ground” the women. 

Those with information are asked to contact the SJPD at (408) 277-4166.

FBI searches Florida home of Gabby Petito’s boyfriend

FBI searches Florida home of Gabby Petito’s boyfriend

By CURT ANDERSON

NORTH PORT, Fla. (AP) — FBI agents and police Monday swarmed the home of the boyfriend wanted for questioning in the disappearance of 22-year-old Gabby Petito, whose body was apparently discovered over the weekend at a Wyoming national park months after the couple set out in a van on a cross-country trek.

The FBI’s Tampa office said in a tweet that it was serving a search warrant, and local media reported that 23-year-old Brian Laundrie’s parents were seen getting into a police vehicle outside the home. Agents would not comment further.

Video showed at least a dozen law enforcement officers pulling up to the Laundries’ house in North Port and rushing in. Later, a police officer could be seen taking a stack of cardboard boxes inside. Brian Laundrie and Petito had been living with his parents before making the trek on which she died.

Petito and Laundrie hit the road in July in a converted van to visit national parks in the West. They got into a fight along the way, and Laundrie was alone when he returned in the van to his parents’ home on Sept. 1, police said.

Laundrie has been named a person of interest in the case, but his whereabouts in recent days were unknown.

In Wyoming, the FBI announced on Sunday that agents had discovered a body while searching campsites on the edge of Grand Teton National Park, which the couple had visited. No details on the cause of death were released. An autopsy was set for Tuesday.

“Full forensic identification has not been completed to confirm 100% that we found Gabby, but her family has been notified,” FBI agent Charles Jones said. “This is an incredibly difficult time for (Petito’s) family and friends.”

Petito’s father, Joseph, posted on social media an image of a broken heart above a picture of his daughter, with the message: “She touched the world.”

An attorney who has been acting as a spokesman for Petito’s family asked in a statement that the family be given room to grieve.

Jones said investigators were seeking information from anyone who may have seen Petito or Laundrie around Grand Teton.

A weekend search of a Florida nature preserve failed to find Laundrie, North Port police said. They said in a statement that they “exhausted all avenues in searching the grounds” of the 24,000-acre (9,700-hectare) Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County.

Investigators had focused intently on the area after Laundrie’s parents told police he may have gone there.

Petito and Laundrie were childhood sweethearts who met while growing up on New York’s Long Island. His parents later moved to North Port, about 35 miles (55 kilometers) south of Sarasota.

Police video released by the Moab, Utah, department showed that an officer pulled the couple’s van over on Aug. 12 after it was seen speeding and hitting a curb near the entrance to Arches National Park. The body-camera footage showed an upset Petito.

Laundrie said on the video that the couple had gotten into a scuffle after he climbed into the van with dirty feet. He said he did not want to pursue a domestic violence charge against Petito, who officers decided was the aggressor.

Moab police separated the couple for the night, with Laundrie checking into a motel and Petito remaining with the van.

Coronavirus Monday update: Ten more deaths and 2,474 new infections

Coronavirus Monday update: Ten more deaths and 2,474 new infections

Ten more Minnesota COVID-19 deaths were reported Monday and 2,474 new coronavirus infections were recorded by the state Department of Health.

The latest deaths range in age from their early 30s to their late 80s with eight residing in private homes, one in long-term care and one in a behavioral health facility. Nine of the deaths occurred in September and one in August.

The death toll is 7,993 with 4,602 fatalities in nursing homes and assisted living. Seniors account for 87 percent of the state’s COVID-19 fatalities.

Hospitalizations continue to increase and have surpassed the Spring 2021 surge. There were 757 patients requiring hospitalization including 250 in critical condition.

The more contagious delta variant of the coronavirus is believed to be responsible for nearly all new infections in Minnesota. All of the state’s 87 counties have high rates of community transmission, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Health officials say vaccination remains the best way to avoid a severe COVID-19 illness. Of the 3.1 million Minnesotans who are fully vaccinated, 99 percent have not reported a breakthrough case.

However, breakthrough infections are on the rise, but are typically mild. There have been 23,330 breakthrough cases reported, or 0.75 percent of the fully vaccinated population.

Through August 22 there have been 1,268 hospitalizations of vaccinated residents and 118 deaths.

Minnesota announced Monday it would continue to use mobile vaccination units to offer shots in hard to reach communities. Six mobile vaccination units have inoculated more than 7,200 people at 170 different sites since April.

Two of those mobile clinics will continue the effort into the fall.

“Working toward equitable COVID-19 vaccination rates has been at the core of our work, and the mobile vaccination units have helped fill a gap in being able to bring vaccines directly to people who might not otherwise have the chance to get vaccinated,” Jan Malcolm, state health commissioner, said in a statement announcing the continuation of the program.

Minnesota has administered 6.3 million doses of vaccine with 3.3 million residents getting at least one dose. More than 71 percent of the vaccine eligible population, age 12 and up, has gotten at least one shot.

Galway students back in-person after COVID forced a remote learning week

Galway students back in-person after COVID forced a remote learning week

GALWAY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Galway Central School District is off to a rocky start this September. A combination of bus driver shortages and a spike in COVID-19 cases sent classes remote for the second week of school.

“We are looking forward to our students in-person learning every day for the rest of the year,” Superintendent Brita Donovan told NEWS10.

After a disappointing turn of events last week, Donovan is optimistic that the district is bouncing back. She welcomed students back into the building Monday morning, thermometer in hand. She said the district is still missing some staff, but has enough to make it happen for now. “We have substitutes and some administrators doing work in the transportation office. Tomorrow we have more, and by Wednesday, we should be back to full staff,” she explained.

Donovan told parents that pick-up and drop-off times could be delayed still because of widespread bus driver shortages. The state recently announced they’re stepping in to bring more CDL holders to schools, and make the process of getting that license quicker.

“I really appreciate our governor addressing it this weekend with some good news for school districts,” Donovan said. It’s important to Donovan not only that students get home while the sun is still up, but also that field trips and athletics aren’t impacted.

It’s spirit week at Galway, so being back in person came right on time. Homecoming festivities kick off this weekend. “The kids are going to have a dance. We have a tent set up for them outside,” she said. “We’re trying to make every activity possible for our students this year.” Superintendent Donovan says she’s always available to hear parents’ questions and concerns.

Best Delta 8 THC Flower Strains & Buds Available Online [2021]

Published

on

50 Colo. Time dealers, Wells are auto fame inductees

Delta-8-THC, often known as Delta-8, is a newcomer to the hemp industry.

It gives you a tingling sensation, but just enough to make you feel nice and light rather than off your head. In addition, a growing number of people think that this cannabis-derived chemical has helped them in various ways.

Its popularity and the broad range of products offered have won over cannabis users across the world.

Delta-8 cartridges, infusions, and even Delta-8 edibles are all the rage when it comes to actual consumption. However, a sizable portion of the user population still favors the more traditional method of smoking the dried variety of cannabis flower buds.

That’s because the most potent way to ingest cannabis is to smoke Delta 8 Cannabinoid flowers.

Delta 8 flowers and commodities must be made using a unique manufacturing process to extract, purify, and isolate Delta 8 from the hemp plant. As a result, Delta 8 Flowers, unlike its brother molecule Delta-9, may provide a unique high.

If you want to smoke Delta 8 Flowers, choose a high-quality brand to reduce the risk of health problems. It can also assist you in getting the most out of your Delta 8 flight. Some of the more well-known Delta 8 Flower brands are listed here.

Flowers of cannabis exist in a variety of colors, forms, and sizes. Of course, you’ll be familiar with the most delicious hemp flower strains if you’ve ever smoked cannabis flowers. But which ones are the most worthy of your time and money in terms of D-8?

Let’s have a look at some of the best Delta 8 flowers available on the market today.

How did we choose these Delta-8 flower products?

Cannabis plants do contain THC delta-8, but only in small levels. Delta-8 THC extraction in its natural state takes a great deal of effort, expertise, and patience. Other cannabinoids can be used to make Delta-8; however, this isn’t legal.

As a result, making truly natural D-8 products is a costly undertaking.

Delta-8 is also accessible in various forms, including dabs, edibles, vape pens, tinctures, and more. Hemp flowers, on the other hand, are one of the most effective and simple ways to extract the majority of the compounds, and they are less expensive than most other items.

When there are dozens of manufacturers selling Delta-8 products, it’s challenging to know what they include. As a result, it’s essential that you, the consumer, learn how to choose the perfect D-8 THC hemp flowers for your requirements.

You’ll need to rely on a reputable company that you can trust to handle its customers properly.

Top companies adhere to stringent criteria for flower safety and potency regularly, ensuring that their farm product has less than 0.3 percent D-9 THC by dry weight.

We realize how difficult it may be to choose a strain or brand of hemp flower to get your daily dose of D-8.

That’s why we make it a point to ensure that the brands and products we recommend are all-natural, organic, free of artificial toxins, and have undergone third-party testing for purity and quality.

When narrowing down our choices, we personally tried out these brands. But first, weeded out all of the lesser-known hemp flower brands and strains that didn’t meet basic customer requirements.

We sought the opinion of some of the country’s leading health and industry experts, as well as customer feedback, before putting these kinds to the test. We also looked for reviews on social media sites, internet forums, and other online communities where people discuss the effects and usefulness of D-8 flowers.

Finally, after much research, we’ve compiled a list of firms and hemp types that can meet all of your D-8 requirements.

In addition to offering top-of-the-line safety and quality products, these companies focus on customer pleasure at every stage of the process!

What exactly is a THC flower?

Cannabis may be enjoyed in several different ways. Traditional cannabis users, on the other hand, prefer to absorb their cannabinoids from flowers rather than through vaping or other means. Cannabis has just two cannabinoids: Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9-THC) and CBD, and there is rising interest in the other well-known cannabinoid products. The ever-popular Delta 8 THC flower is commonly used as a  replacement for Delta 9-THC and CBD flowers.

Delta-8-THC, like CBD, is present in hemp flowers naturally. CBD hemp flowers, on the other hand, are widely available. It’s known for not producing the same high or intoxicating effects as Delta-9-THC, which may be found in Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica, respectively. The chemical profile of Delta-8-THC is similar to that of Delta-9-THC. It is, however, less effective. Half the potency equals roughly half the high.

CBD and Delta-9-THC are both abundant in many cannabis strains. Most dried cannabis flowers, on the other hand, contain less than 1% Delta-8-THC. Despite the tiny percentage, the cannabinoid may be isolated and isolated from hemp flowers. The Delta-8-THC concentration is reintroduced to the hemp flower to generate Delta 8 Flower.

Since the market is flooded with competitors, finding a new product at Delta 8 Flowers may be intricate. You might waste a lot of time looking for information or comparing Delta-8 evaluations.

Customer service, price, and the quality of the products you run into will all be dramatically different. To help you find the best flowers with ease, we’ve compiled a selection of the best Delta 8 flowers available right now. So, if you want to get the advantages of CBD while still getting high on Delta 8 Flowers, these are the best Delta 8 Flowers for you.

Consumer comments and criticism may be used to determine if a brand meets the expectations of its customers. The image of a business may also reveal whether or not a firm delivers fast customer service or whether or not the purchasing process is straightforward for customers.

Hemp Plant Production Techniques

A brand’s production processes determine whether or not a product is of high quality. A brand may use various production techniques to extract and refine Delta 8 THC, for example. Check to determine if the brand is transparent about its manufacturing processes to ensure quality.

Honesty and independent testing are essential.

Another way to evaluate if a company is producing high-quality products is to look at their test results and see whether they are open and honest about them. Brands that make their laboratory findings public provide consumers confidence that their Delta-8 THC products are safe to consume.

When it comes to consumption, D-8 hemp flowers are no different from any other hemp flower. They are a simple, easy, and cost-effective method of consuming hemp-derived cannabinoids.

Smoking is enjoyable.

When it comes to hemp flowers, the first thing that springs to mind is puffing your way through a joint. This method is perfect for enjoying the flavor while still obtaining a quick high. You may even make a large joint using delta-8-THC flowers and smoke it alone or with your friends!

It’s great to vape!

While inhaling cannabis isn’t as harmful as tobacco, vaping is a better option since you don’t inhale the poisonous gases generated when carbon-based compounds are burned, as you would with dried plants. Furthermore, it has the same potency and action speed as smoking hemp.

To personalize your high, make your oils, snacks, and creams.

These flowers might be utilized to produce customized CBD hemp flower products if you’re a savvy hemp lover. To get the full advantages of these hemp flowers, you may make your meals, tinctures, and even topical treatments. However, the benefits of smoking or vaping these flowers may last longer; please remember that they take more time to kick in!

Things to consider before buying Delta 8 THC flowers:

Since Delta-8 THC flowers in their original environment are so difficult to come by in most cultivars, only a few firms sell them. This makes choosing the highest-quality hemp flowers more difficult.

Delta-8 flowers may well be the ideal stress reliever after a long day, providing just the perfect amount of high while also enabling you to unwind. If you want to try them, make sure you get high-quality strains from a recognized firm that have been grown and cured.

So, here are some pointers…

Quality

It may be more difficult for a client to assess the efficacy of the Delta 8 hemp flower than it is for a producer. Nonetheless, the best we can do is pick a company that discloses test results for its products online and operates in a very transparent manner.

Purity

When tasting a delta-8 THC flower, this is perhaps the most crucial thing to look for! Always seek hemp farms that are 100 percent organic, non-GMO, and pesticide-free. Furthermore, brands must have sufficient confidence in their ability to obtain lab results.

Get a feel for the scent

Even if it isn’t always correct, this is an obvious indicator of quality. Is there a robust and fresh terpene fragrance that you detect? Or does it smell stale and rotten? A sufficiently dried and cured hemp bud will emit a terpene-rich aroma.

Observation is key

Their appearance also determines the quality of the buds. Flowers with dense buds and trichomes (resin crystals) are preferred over airy and carelessly cut. The color of high-quality flowers can range from light green to purple. However, they should never be dark brown. This might indicate an issue with the curing process.

Brands that get their products evaluated by third-party labs and provide COAs (Certificates of Analysis) to online users are more trustworthy. Furthermore, independent laboratories can confirm that the flower strain you’re buying is free from contamination and rich in cannabinoids and terpenes, making it simpler to execute your transaction.

The brand’s reputation

A well-known brand will always be transparent about its business practices and will never skimp on quality. It’s best to choose a brand that has a lot of favorable customer reviews.

Alternatives/Variants

Delta-8 flowers might include other cannabinoids such as CBD or the lesser known CBG (kief). It’s all up to you. This isn’t something that all brands provide, though. Furthermore, producers typically provide customers with a diverse variety of strains, each with its own set of cannabinoid and terpene profiles. You may choose based on the level of effect you wish to create.

Cost

You’ll need a lot of time, effort, knowledge, and money to extract pure Delta-8 THC. Furthermore, it will most likely be expensive. So pick a strain from a reliable provider that produces intense, high-quality hemp flowers (preferably ones that have been lab-tested) and budget carefully.

FAQs About Delta 8 Flowers

Q. What methods do companies use to make these flowers?

A: Delta-8 THC flowers are the most cutting-edge method of reaping the benefits of this notable cannabinoid. Hemp flowers with a high percentage of Delta-8 THC have been genetically modified to boost their D-8 content. They are hand-picked, trimmed, and cured for the best possible outcomes. Before wrapping the buds in CBD kief, brands may dust or roll them in Delta-8 THC distillates.

Q. What is it about Delta 8 THC that has made it so popular?

A: Delta-8 is considered to offer particular therapeutic benefits, including hunger stimulation and pain relief, as well as a pleasant high and relaxation. It can also assist with anxiety, depression, and sleeping problems. Even though study on the effects of Delta-8 flowers is still ongoing, we recommend that you see a physician before using it.

Q. Is it possible to get high on Delta 8 flowers?

A: Yes, it’s conceivable. Delta 8-THC is a bliss-inducing psychoactive chemical extracted from natural Hemp. It is, however, less potent than Delta-9 THC and has no hallucinogenic or paranoid properties.

Q. Is using Delta 8 flowers legal?

A: Yes, so far. Under the 2018 Farm Bill, any commodities containing less than 0.3 percent Delta-9 THC are now lawful. Its metabolites are comparable to those of D-9, so it’s still a bit of a grey area. Metabolites are substances that show up on a drug test.

Q. Is Delta 8 THC detectable on a drug test?

A: Yes, it’s conceivable. The metabolites of Delta-8 THC are comparable to those of Delta-9 THC. Unless you go through many levels of testing, you will almost definitely fail a drug test. Most employers do not do several levels of drug testing. As a starting point, they select the first level.

Q. What is the nature of your review process?

A: Our passion for hemp flowers stems from years of personal and professional experience. The most popular and well-reviewed Delta 8 hemp products are next analyzed.

Each brand’s reputation, reliability, hemp flowers, additional product options, customer service, and free shipping policies are also evaluated.

Our ultimate goal is for you to have access to all of the information you require.

Some of the concerns that every customer should be aware of have been clarified. Furthermore, the industrial hemp secrets have been disclosed, allowing you to buy with confidence.

Final Thoughts: Which Is The Best Delta-8 Flower Brand?

These brands were chosen because they matched or exceeded our criterion for high-quality brands and items. To assure quality, these firms obtain their hemp plants through traditional farming techniques and third-party lab testing.

The businesses do not compensate for low quality by ensuring client satisfaction. When it comes to brand selection, you may use these criteria to assess whether or not a brand is acceptable for your Delta 8 requirements.

Delta 8 Flowers are quality hemp flowers infused with a powerful Delta-8 distillate. These flowers are big and give you a good buzz. Finding a dependable Delta 8 flower provider might be difficult. Businesses like Exhale adhere to a strict and high-quality standard when it comes to manufacturing Delta 8 Flowers.

Always double-check the manufacturing processes and hemp-growing methods of reputable businesses. A trustworthy Delta 8 brand will give you open and honest information about its manufacturing methods. Keep in mind, though, that Delta-8 Flowers are rather powerful, so proceed at your peril.

U.S. Will Ease Restrictions for Fully Vaccinated Foreign Travelers in November

U.S. Will Ease Restrictions for Fully Vaccinated Foreign Travelers in November
The U.S. is expected to ease travel restrictions for vaccinated foreign visitors in November.

In a long-awaited move, a White House official announced on Monday that the United States will finally ease travel restrictions on vaccinated foreign visitors starting in November.

Under the Biden administration’s new policy, foreign travelers must not only show proof of full vaccination, but also provide a negative COVID-19 test from within three days prior to coming to the U.S., said White House coronavirus response coordinator Jeff Zients, according to the New York Times.

Vaccinated travelers will not be required to quarantine upon arrival to the United States.

Unvaccinated Americans will also be able to travel to the U.S., but will have to test negative for COVID-19 one day before traveling, as well as upon arrival. The CDC is also expected to issue an order requiring airlines to collect travelers’ phone numbers and email addresses for a new contact tracing system. Officials will use the contact tracing system to ask travelers after arrival if they are experiencing symptoms.

The U.S. has restricted travel for most foreigners looking to enter the country for well over a year; the policy began under the Trump administration in early 2020, as the coronavirus began to spread. President Joe Biden maintained certain restrictions for travelers from the E.U., U.K. and other countries, citing the rise of coronavirus cases and the rapid spread of the highly contagious Delta variant.

Zients told the New York Times that the pace of the global vaccine effort contributed to the administration’s decision to ease travel restrictions.

“International travel is critical to connecting families and friends, to fueling small and large businesses, to promoting the open exchange ideas and culture,” Zients said. “That’s why, with science and public health as our guide, we have developed a new international air travel system that both enhances the safety of Americans here at home and enhances the safety of international air travel.”

Even as certain restrictions begin to lift, anyone traveling right now should continue to keep updated on government and health regulations and advisories. At the moment, the CDC recommends unvaccinated travelers avoid any international travel.

BTS ARMY unites to #ProtectBTS from superfans mobbing the K-pop group’s NYC hotel

Published

BTS ARMY are concerned

Fans of BTS — known as the BTS ARMY — are calling out those flocking to the hotel that the South Korean supergroup is staying at in New York. 

The SDG Moment: BTS, who have been designated South Korea’s “special presidential envoy for future generations and culture,” is in New York to attend the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Moment 2021 at the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) from Sept. 19-23, NextShark previously reported.

  • The seven-member boy band arrived in New York on Sunday, along with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
  • At the UNGA on Monday, BTS gave their remarks after an introduction from President Moon Jae-in. The group also prepared a special performance for the audience as part of the GA’s opening segment.

  • Ahead of the UNGA, BTS’ official Twitter account asked fans to share their experiences from the past two years. The group said in a tweet, “What’s your world like today? Express the precious things that make up your world or show who you are now with an image, an emoji or a word. At the UN, your stories will begin.”
  • Prior to BTS’ arrival in New York, Big Hit, the band’s management agency, reportedly released a statement asking fans to avoid flocking to the airport.

“Protect BTS”: On Sunday, “#ProtectBTS” became a trending topic on Twitter as some members of the BTS ARMY spoke out against other fans who they felt did not respect the group’s privacy. 

  • Others uploaded images on social media, showing BTS’ arrival at the airport and crowds of people lining up to welcome the group in person.

  • The posts are filled with comments from loyal fans who feel that some other fans are crossing the line and putting their idols in danger.  
  • Some berated their fellow fans for tracking their schedule and monitoring their airport arrivals. 
  • Others defended the fans showing up in droves because as “long as they are respectful” and “stay in the line,” then it isn’t an issue.
  • Meanwhile, many fans just wished that the band members would stay safe and well during their stay in New York.

BTS first attended a UN session in 2018, where they delivered a speech as part of a UNICEF campaign to promote youth education, training and employment. They also attended the 75th UN General Assembly virtually last year to discuss the struggles faced by future generations caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
