    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – Amid a debate about whether students should be required to take standardized tests in person as COVID-19 continues to spread, the state Department of Education is giving an additional two weeks for the Florida Standards Assessments and a statewide science test to be administered. In an emergency order signed Monday, Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran pointed to “disproportionate numbers of educationally disadvantaged students learning off-campus or not attending school at all,” potentially widening achievement gaps. RELATED: Gov. Ron DeSantis Once Again Takes Aim At Big Tech The testing required by state and federal law “is now more critical than ever so that educators and parents can measure progress and determine what additional services and supports are needed to ensure that each student is given the services and supports they need to succeed in life,” Corcoran’s order says.

    By David Shepardson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - New rules took effect just before midnight Tuesday requiring millions of travelers in the United States to wear masks on airplanes, trains, buses, ferries, taxis and ride-share vehicles and in airports, stations, ports and other transit hubs. The new rules were ordered by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) late Friday to address the spread of COVID-19 after being blocked by President Donald Trump from imposing the requirements in August. President Joe Biden signed an executive order on Jan. 21 tasking federal agencies with issuing rules "to save lives and allow all Americans, including the millions of people employed in the transportation industry, to travel and work safely." Advocacy group FlyersRights.org Monday urged the Biden administration to go farther and mandate the use of N95, KN95 or surgical masks on airplanes as well as "stricter social distancing guidelines, temperature checks (and)...

    Here’s what’s happening Saturday with the pandemic in the U.S.: THREE THINGS TO KNOW TODAY: — An Associated Press analysis shows that Black people in many parts of the U.S. are lagging behind whites in receiving COVID-19 vaccinations. Statistics released by 17 states and two cities tell the same story: Through Jan. 25, Black people were getting inoculated at levels below their share of the general population. The early look at the racial breakdowns of those getting the shots is particularly troubling given that the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention says Blacks, Hispanic and Native Americans are dying of the virus at nearly three times the rate of white people. — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an order that will require masks to be worn nationwide on federal property and certain modes of public transportation, including planes, trains, subways, buses, taxis and ride-shares. The order...

    SANTA ANA (CBSLA) — State health officials Monday lifted all regional stay-at-home orders, including in the 11- county Southern California region, but counties will still be subject to the tight regulations of the restrictive “purple” tier of economic reopening guidelines. Although the state order was lifted, individual counties are still able to impose stricter restrictions than the state.

Lifting the state order could mean a resumption of outdoor dining, as well as some services at gyms, barbershops and nail salons, among other...

    By JULIE WATSON, Associated Press SAN DIEGO (AP) — A San Diego strip club kept on offering live adult entertainment over the weekend despite a warning from California’s attorney general, who has vowed to take legal action if the business does not close to comply with the state’s stay-at-home order that was issued this month. Jason Saccuzzo, the lawyer for Pacers Showgirls International, said Monday that a court order issued last month makes it clear the business is protected from restrictions issued by San Diego County and state officials. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said in a cease-and-desist letter sent to Pacers and Cheetahs Gentlemen’s Club last Friday that they are violating the state’s new stay-at-home policy, which bars indoor and outdoor dining and prohibits social gatherings that bring together people of different households in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus. Becerra wrote that he was acting...
    AGOURA HILLS (CBSLA) – Customers and the community came out Monday to provide a big show of support for a popular Agoura Hills sports bar which is at risk of being shut down permanently for defying Los Angeles County’s ban on outdoor in-person dining. Customers dine at Cronies Sports Grill in Agoura Hills, Calif., on Dec. 7, 2020. (CBSLA) The protest was held Monday Cronies Sports Grill, located in the 5600 block of Kanan Road, after inspectors with the L.A. County Department of Public Health and the city last week warned Cronies to stop serving customers outdoors. The restaurant was fined thousands of dollars and its health permit was suspended. A hearing will be held next week to determine if the permit should be suspended permanently. Cronies management told CBSLA that outdoor dining is the only way the restaurant will be able to survive. “I don’t take this virus light...
    Complying with a recent court order, the Trump administration on Monday reinstated a program created by President Obama to shield undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as minors from deportation, announcing it would accept initial applications for the first time in three years. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security said it would administer the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program under the guidelines crafted by the Obama administration in 2012. Starting Monday, DHS said it would grant approved applicants work permits and deportation deferrals that last for two years and allow DACA-holders to request permission to travel abroad under certain circumstances. The restoration of Mr. Obama's signature immigration policy, mandated by a federal judge in Brooklyn on Friday, is a major victory for more than 640,000 current DACA recipients, as well as an estimated 300,000 undocumented immigrant teenagers and young adults who could be eligible to apply for the...

Here’s a roundup of the COVID stories we’ve published over the last 24 hours. Anticipated Thanksgiving Surge Underway; State Slips Under 15 Percent ICU Capacity SACRAMENTO — The much anticipated surge of new cases from Thanksgiving gatherings and travel has begun, Gov.

    JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves plans to update his regulations around social gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic later this week as virus cases continue to surge. “In the meantime the best tool is the same: wear a mask. Avoid crowds. Be smart. Protect loved ones,” he wrote in a Tweet Monday. Reeves' current executive order places mask mandates in 54 out of 82 Mississippi counties and restricts gatherings to no more than 20 people indoors and 100 people outdoors when social distancing isn't possible. It is set to expire Friday. Reeves asked in his tweet that residents be “extra cautious and mindful" and take their safety and others' into consideration when making decisions. The state health officer, Dr. Thomas Dobbs, said Mississippi is seeing a “Thanksgiving surge” in virus cases, with numbers rising rapidly in recent days. Dobbs also said Monday that the FDA is reviewing a...

    As coronavirus cases continue to surge throughout the region, District officials said at a Monday news conference that they don’t plan to reinstate a stay-at-home order for D.C. yet. Their reasoning is simple: People probably won’t follow it. D.C. Health Director Dr. LaQuandra Nesbitt said that her office could move “to a stay-at-home posture. But that would not necessarily be widely acceptable by the residents of our community.” “And the degree to which we get adherents to that immediately may also be debatable, now nine months into the response,” she added. Asked about how compliance has been for wearing face masks, as well as mask enforcement and penalties, Mayor Muriel Bowser said D.C. residents and businesses have been “amazing.” But she added that mask compliance during the holidays has been difficult. “And we still have a few more months of this and going into the cold weather, all of that...

    Florida has joined Texas and California as the only states in the Union to surpass 1 million COVID-19 cases, but its Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, continues to resist calls to impose a statewide lockdown. DeSantis has gone so far as to mandate that schools be open while mocking those who support a closure of schools as 'flat-earthers.'  The Department of Health released new data on Tuesday indicating that the Sunshine State reached the grim milestone. The department said that 8,847 new cases were added to the tally on Tuesday, pushing the total thus far during the pandemic to 1,008,166 cases. As of Tuesday, 18,679 Floridians have died.

    By DON THOMPSON, Associated Press SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A staggering rise in coronavirus cases could overwhelm California's health system within weeks and “drastic" action such as a widespread stay-at-home order may be needed to combat the threat, Gov. Gavin Newsom warned. Hospitalizations from COVID-19 have increased nearly 90% and could triple by Christmas, officials said Monday. “The red flags are flying in terms of the trajectory in our projections of growth," Newsom said. The number of COVID-19 cases reported each day in California has been setting records, with the average daily case rate over the last week topping 14,000. The levels are far above those recorded during a summer peak or even in March, when a state public health order restricted people from going outside except for the most essential reasons. That order was later eased. Currently, 51 of 58 counties are in the “purple" tier of the state's...

    PHOTO VIA NSFPublic school instruction will continue in-person and online this spring as coronavirus cases continue to increase across Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis and Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran said Monday. Appearing at Boggy Creek Elementary School in Kissimmee, DeSantis supported a new order by Corcoran that will keep the online option available and provide protections for school-district funding. But DeSantis and Corcoran emphasized the importance of in-person learning. The order requires students struggling with virtual learning to shift to brick-and-mortar classrooms unless their parents formally object. “The data and the evidence is overwhelmingly clear, virtual learning is just not the same as being in person,” said DeSantis, who has argued that schools are safe amid the pandemic. “We wanted to figure out a way to still offer the parents choice, but to really put the onus on the school districts to be monitoring this, and when they see students fall...

    The New York State Department of Health says it is investigating a Hasidic wedding that was scheduled in upstate New York Monday evening at a synagogue where throngs of people were seen gathering without masks and not practicing social distancing. Officials were so concerned about the event, originally set to take place at the Congregation Yetev Lev synagogue in Kiyras Joel, that they issued a cease and desist order to leaders of the Satmar sect just hours before it was due to get underway. Still, a steady stream of bearded, black-hatted men were seen gathering at the massive synagogue around the event’s originally-scheduled time. “The order we issued on Monday morning was clear: social gatherings must follow strict protocols regarding capacity limits, mask wearing, and social distancing in order to help stop the spread of COVID-19,” a spokesperson for the New York State Department of Health told The Daily Beast...
    SHERMAN OAKS (CBSLA) — The Valley Inn in Sherman Oaks was hoping that outdoor dining could help them make it during the holiday season. Now, the owners fear they’ll have to throw out thousands of dollars worth of food. After reaching a 4,000 five-day daily average of cases on Sunday, the county released a health order requiring in-person dining to shut down at restaurants, wineries and breweries as of 10 p.m. Wednesday. Sophia Brodetsky and her family have invested tens of thousands of dollars to follow health guidelines to cling on to their restaurant. “We’ve spent over a thousand dollars on heaters,” Brodetsky said. But L.A. County’s decision to stop in-person dining, including outdoors, goes into effect hours before Thanksgiving. “To prepare everything for thanksgiving we have reservations,” she said. “We’re completely for outside dining.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — One day after releasing plans to nix in-person dining for three weeks, Los Angeles County reported another record-high daily number of cases. On Monday, 6,124 new COVID-19 cases were confirmed — by far the highest single-day total since the beginning of the pandemic. Public health director Dr. Barbara Ferrer said that 1,500 of those cases were the result of a testing backlog from Sunday. But, even without those cases, the cases from Monday are still high enough to trigger yet another, stricter health order. According to thresholds the county released last week, a renewed Safer-At-Home order would be implemented if the county’s five-day average of new cases topped 4,500, or if hospitalizations topped 2,000. The order would last for at least three weeks. The details of the new “targeted” Safer at Home order are not clear. Health officials are expected to have a conversation with the...
    MANILA, Philippines — Philippine officials say about 60 million Filipinos are being targeted for vaccination against the coronavirus next year at a cost of more than 73 billion pesos ($1.4 billion) to develop considerable immunity among a majority of Filipinos.

In an online post shared on Saturday, Fulton County Sheriff Rich Giardino described the order as “unconstitutional, unenforceable and a low priority for his department,” according to the report. He went on to claim that Cuomo’s efforts went too far and that he had received many calls from local citizens concerned about its enforcement. “We have limited resources and we have to set priorities, so obtaining a search warrant to enter your home to see how many Turkey or Tofu eaters are present is not a priority,” Giardino wrote.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Illinois reported 10,631 new COVID-19 cases on Sunday, and 72 more deaths. Nationwide, the U.S. has now reached 11 million cases – just six days after hitting 10 million. It is the fastest the country has added a million cases since the coronavirus pandemic began. Because of the rapidly-spreading outbreak, Chicago has issued a stay-at-home advisory effective at 6 a.m. Monday. As CBS 2’s Steven Graves reported, doctors say at its core, the advisory is about being responsible. With Thanksgiving ahead, the message is more of a desperate plea. On Sunday night, CBS 2’s cameras caught people making final stops at Chicago stores. They had essentials such as toilet paper in hand, hours before that stay-at-home advisory was to take effect. It was a similar scene to when a statewide stay-at-home order was in place back in March. But the advisory in Chicago, and a similar one...

    Washington state health officials warned people living in the state on Tuesday to cancel their Thanksgiving plans and opt for virtual get togethers as the COVID-19 pandemic gains ground. A Tuesday press conference saw a range of health experts detailing the state of the pandemic in Washington. State health officials repeated the same advice they have dolled out since late September: wear a face mask, stay six feet apart from people outside your household, and limit social gatherings to just a few people. DOH Secretary of Health Lacy Fehrenbach recommended that people plan on not holding any social gatherings for at least the next few weeks. “It’s important to remember that we can get COVID from people we know, love, and trust who may not know they have it or be asymptomatic,” Fehrenbach said. “We know that folks are done with COVID and looking forward to...
    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A federal judge Monday tossed a restriction he placed on federal officers’ actions in response to protests near the federal courthouse in Portland. “I find that the foundation for the injunction has simply fallen apart,” U.S. District Judge Michael W. Mosman said, ruling from the bench. “It has been erased by a change on the ground - a change that, without trying to get into the heads of the plaintiffs, by all appearances is their victory.” On Election Day, lawyers for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security urged the judge and the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to put an emergency hold on Mosman’s Nov. 2 order, arguing it would put federal officers in danger and wasn’t justified. The Homeland Security department also filed a formal appeal. A three-judge panel of the appellate court declined. During a status hearing Monday, Mosman said there was no...
    By Sonali Paul MELBOURNE (Reuters) - A trial began on Monday alleging dozens of journalists, editors and media companies breached an Australia-wide court suppression order in reporting on ex-Vatican treasurer George Pell's child sex abuse conviction in 2018. Breaches of suppression orders can be punished with up to five years jail and fines of nearly A$100,000 for individuals and nearly A$500,000 for companies. Pell was convicted in December 2018 of abusing two choirboys but reporting on the trial and the conviction was gagged by the County Court of Victoria to ensure the cardinal received a fair trial on further charges he was due to face. Overseas publications, including the Washington Post and Daily Beast, reported the news shortly after the verdict. Some of them geoblocked access to Australia, but others did not. After that, some Australian media published articles saying they were unable to report major news regarding an unnamed...

    As looters and rioters ransacked the city of Philadelphia again Tuesday night in response to the deadly police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr., the city police's response was reportedly obstructed by their own deputy commissioner. WTXF-TV reporter Steve Keeley tweeted Wednesday morning that police officers were "extremely frustrated" after Deputy Police Commissioner Melvin Singleton allegedly ordered both patrol and commanding officers to "not arrest looters just disperse them." "By the order of CAR-2, Philadelphia Police will respond to 'priority' calls only," the alleged directive from the department obtained by Keeley said. "This means no calls for disturbance, missing person, stolen vehicle, burglary or theft will be answered." Keeley added that some officers believe the order "leaves no deterrent to stop looting." It was not immediately clear if and when the order became effective, as police made at least 90 arrests, most for burglary, during Monday's riots. However, Keeley's tweet...
