On this edition of Your Call, we will discuss the Coronavirus pandemic. Last week, the CDC relaxed its COVID-19 guideline for social distancing and quarantining.

The US is recording more than 100,000 cases and nearly 500 deaths a day on average, according to The New York Times. According to CDC data, only around 67% of the entire US population is fully vaccinated at this point.
