WASHINGTON – Today, the President will share his plan to fight COVID-19, highlighting a top priority: vaccinating the unvaccinated.

Right now, a little more than 62 percent of people 12 and up are fully vaccinated.

This part of the plan will reportedly focus on vaccine requirements including building upon the ones already in place for many federal workers and pressing private businesses to do the same.

Next, he will also push furthering protection for the vaccinated, that means booster shots once they’re approved.

Third, he plans to launch a focus on keeping schools open.

Fourth, increasing testing and requiring masking. Officials say that means expanded access to testing and wading into the heated debate over masking in schools.

Fifth, he will eye economic recovery, and sixth, improving care for those with COVID-19. So far, that’s meant helping hospitals inundated with patients.

The President is set to announce his plan in D.C. at five o’clock Thursday.
