COVID-19 Bulletin (10/26/21)

Dallas Mavericks are lifting their COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Moderna says its vaccine is effective on kids aged 6-11.

Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins reported 603 new COVID-19 cases and 12 deaths on Monday.

New international COVID-19 air travel policies to begin Nov. 8, WFAA reports. The new policies include full vaccination requirements for non-immigrant adults traveling to the US and proof of a negative COVID-19 test. There are limited exemptions for adults. Children under 18 will not be required to be fully vaccinated but will need to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test.

Dallas Mavericks are set to lift COVID-19 requirements, The Dallas Morning News reports. Although masks are still required, the Dallas Mavericks are lifting their requirement of fans showing proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test taken within 48 hours to attend home games. If Dallas’ daily average case count rises above 500, original requirements will be reinstated.

Moderna says their low dose COVID-19 shot works on children 6 to 11, KERA reports.  Moderna says preliminary results showed vaccinated kids developed virus-fighting antibodies similar to levels that young adults produce after full-strength shots. Moderna’s study showed that like in adults, the vaccinated children had temporary side effects including fatigue, headache, fever, and injection site pain.
