The US has a $25 billion coronavirus testing problem

Nursing homes have been the source of deadly coronavirus outbreaks throughout the course of the pandemic, leading to nearly 32,000 deaths in the US.

Getting on top of coronavirus outbreaks in nursing homes requires frequent testing. The big question is, who’s going to pay for it?

The question of who will pay for testing isn’t unique to nursing homes either – as industries look to reopen and return to the office, if testing is a component, the cost, estimated at $25 billion, will likely be a big hurdle.

Supreme Court rules that the federal law that bars sex discrimination in employment also applies to LGBTQ individuals

  • The Supreme Court decided in a landmark ruling on Monday that existing antidiscrimination employment protections apply to individuals who are gay, lesbian, and transgender.
  • In a 6-3 decision, conservative Justices John Roberts and Neil Gorsuch sided with the court’s four liberal voices.
  • The decision is a blow to the Trump administration, which argued that existing protections did not apply to people based on their identification in the LGBTQ community.
