States Respond to COVID-19: New Requirements due to Delta Variant

As the COVID-19 Delta variant continues to spread rapidly across the United States, several states have implemented new safety requirements.

Amid the Delta variant outbreak, the federal government has offered increased help for states that are experiencing high rates of new cases. A federal surge team is assisting Nevada, after the state asked for federal help to address the spike in cases. But other states have resisted federal assistance. South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster (R) prohibited state agencies from working with the federal government, despite cases quadrupling over the past three weeks.
