CDC: U.S. FACES ‘WORST FALL’ EVER IF COVID-19 GUIDELINES ARE IGNORED The U.S. is at risk of experiencing the worst fall health season ever if more people don’t follow coronavirus prevention measures, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned. “We’re kind of in a war,” Dr. Robert Redfield told WebMD in an interview. In order for the nation to safely get through it, he advised that the public do four things: Wear a face mask, stay 6 feet from others, frequently wash hands and avoid large crowds. “I’m not asking some of America to do it — we’ve all got to do it,” he said.

GEORGIA GOV. DROPS SUIT AGAINST ATLANTA’S MASK ORDER Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp says he’s dropping a lawsuit against the city of Atlanta over the city’s requirement to wear face masks in public and other restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic. The Republican governor sued Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and the City Council in July to block them from implementing local restrictions at the local level, even as case counts and hospitalizations in the state soared.

THE EVICTION CRISIS COULD COMPOUND VOTER SUPPRESSION Over 20 million Americans could be evicted by the end of September, with 30 to 40 million facing eviction by December. In-between, one of the most highly anticipated presidential elections in recent history will take place. That eviction crisis could make it harder for people to vote ― and, in turn, harder to hold politicians accountable for failing them in the midst of a pandemic. “It’s the compounding of all of the worst things at the same time,” said Ría Thompson-Washington, manager of the Voting Rights and Democracy Program at the Center for Popular Democracy.
