COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. are falling and the number of new cases per day is about to dip below 100,000 for the first time in two months. All are encouraging signs that the summer surge is waning.

Government leaders and employers not wanting to lose momentum are looking at strengthening and expanding vaccine mandates.
