The latter, an Occupational Safety and Health Administration rule that took effect on Monday, said that businesses with at least 100 employees needed to require workers to get vaccinated, or get tested weekly and wear a mask.

    New auto insurance law forcing severely injured people to scramble for scarcer and scarcer care

    The first thing you notice about Jake Veeder is his horrific injuries. The second thing you notice is his absolutely killer smile, the kind that lights up his whole face. His mother is Tricia Smith. She has the same smile. Smith looks way too young to be the 23-year old Veeder’s mother. People mistake the two for brother and sister, or worse, girlfriend and boyfriend, all the time. “I hate it,” Veeder said, with just a tiny hint of that killer smile. I met mother and son, along with Melanie Olson, Veeder’s medical case manager, outside his new home, Maple

    The pandemic has exacerbated India’s mental health care crisis.

    Leena Khurana was 14 years old when her classmates began bullying her—and soon after, she had her first psychotic breakdown.

    Under Trump, gains in health care coverage for Latino children mostly erased

    Latino children were disproportionately affected by an overall increase in child uninsured rates between 2016 and 2019 when Donald Trump was president, according to a recent study.
