U.S. public health officials said a second Covid-19 shot could be administered as much as six weeks apart from the first one in situations where it was not possible to get a booster dose immediately.

After months of urging the public to wear masks and facial coverings to help stop infected people from spreading Covid-19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stated in newly released guidance that masks also protected the mask wearer from being infected.
