Jeff Zients, the White House COVID coordinator, was even more emphatic about this last week. The Biden administration is sending every signal that the US is not following Europe into lockdowns. And frankly, there is no political appetite in this country for a return to shutdowns.

“Yes, for now,” Biden says of lockdowns being off the table. Says way back to “normal” is continuing to increase vaccinations.

“After nine months in office, Mr. Biden has conducted roughly a dozen one-on-one interviews with major print and television news outlets. That compares with more than 50 for Mr. Trump, and more than 100 for Barack Obama, in the same period.”

#ConsiderThis: For those living with long COVID, daily activities like going for a walk, washing the dishes, or being on a Zoom call can be incredibly draining. The patients who have it are desperate for answers that doctors don't yet have.

Analysis up for @CookPolitical on Leahy’s retirement decision in #VTSen. All eyes on what Rep. Peter Welch will do, and then the fight for his House seat could mean Vermont won’t be the only state in the country to not have sent a woman to Congress 🔒
