Most parents (58%) say K-12 schools should mandate masks for students & staff, regardless of #COVID vaccination status. 35% oppose such a requirement. Mothers are much more likely than fathers to support a mask requirement (70% vs. 42%). https://t.co/fttnHHWBrj

As Congress debates a new tax credit to help people pay for home & community-based services, about 1 in 5 adults say they are giving unpaid support to a friend/family member. Most of them say this has adversely affected their own health and/or finances. https://t.co/Qbuoil7KRj

Over 90,000 deaths from #COVID19 since June likely could have been prevented by vaccination, according to our recent estimates w/@PetersonCHealth. More than half of these deaths occurred in September alone. https://t.co/ud5ibVatlm

Drug overdoses rose during the #COVID19 pandemic, particularly among Black and American Indian/Alaska Native people. Our experts examine trend data on deaths and other indicators of substance use prevalence and access to care by race and ethnicity: https://t.co/QKKLv3Q9C1

The #COVID19 pandemic exacerbated existing health disparities for a broad range of populations, but specifically for people of color. How are adults faring on a range of #socialdeterminants of health? https://t.co/6neDqv4Cdz

Americans largely expect that #COVID19 is unlikely to ever go away, and that the U.S. will learn to live with & manage the disease, like the seasonal flu. Just 14% say it will be “largely eliminated in the U.S. like polio.” https://t.co/qfSjQmn0L0

Telehealth for medication abortion has been available on a trial basis for years, & its use expanded due to COVID. Still, 19 states ban #telehealth for abortion or require a doctor's presence when dispensing the medication, despite its safety record. https://t.co/RSkk9er8Lz

NEW: Though health care is essential to health, so are factors like socioeconomic status, education, neighborhood and physical environment, employment, and social support networks. We look at how adults are faring across many measures during the pandemic. https://t.co/6neDqv4Cdz

Due to the #pandemic, the FDA suspended enforcement of the requirement that the abortion pill (mifepristone) be dispensed to patients in-person. This allows the pills to be mailed to telehealth patients in states that do not ban it. Learn more: https://t.co/RSkk9er8Lz

A proposal in Congress for paid family & medical leave has been scaled back from 12 weeks to 4, @POTUS said last night. Just 1 in 5 workers now have access to paid #familyleave – the share is lower for low-wage & part-time workers, and in some fields. https://t.co/9KWjQbDivN

Across most measures, adults w/children in the household fared worse in the #pandemic compared to adults overall. 22% of adults w/kids in the household experienced loss of employment income in last 4 weeks vs 17.4% of adults overall in early September. https://t.co/6neDqv4Cdz

While #Medicare beneficiaries are encouraged to review options during #OpenEnrollment, 71% say they didn't compare plans during a recent enrollment period. Some groups – incl. some who could be most affected by plan changes – were even less likely to shop. https://t.co/5twYEdleUM

1 in 3 American families can't afford enough diapers to keep their infants and toddlers clean, dry and healthy, according to the @diapernetwork. For many parents, that leads to wrenching choices: diapers, food or rent? 📝: @JennyAGold https://t.co/yO2UBRXslp

As Democrats in Congress look to bring down the cost of the #BBBA, there’s talk of providing vouchers to help seniors on Medicare in the near term with the cost of dental, vision & hearing. Like so many policy options, this one that involves tradeoffs🧵 (https://t.co/8jAtQ5AtRZ

In some parts of the country, a rotating band of traveling nurses helps keep intensive care units fully staffed - for a high price. Those higher wages are tempting some staff nurses to hit the road, too. 📝: @flakebarmer / @WPLN https://t.co/ZKbOI5QwkS

There is a long history of debates over using vouchers in health care. Proponents see vouchers as more market-oriented and as a way of controlling spending. Critics see vouchers as capping assistance irrespective of need, lacking price restraints, and subject to fraud. https://t.co/CmWBMzMCrj

Life expectancy improvements in the U.S. have fallen short of peer countries despite higher health spending in the U.S. COVID-19 has made this disparity worse. https://t.co/2NwohSqgCZ

OTC hearing aids could be a game-changer. Why? ➡️close to half of people w/Medicare reported difficulty hearing in 2019 ➡️a small share spent thousands out of pocket for hearing care in 2018 ➡️most who couldn’t get hearing care said it was due to cost https://t.co/SVs08OyuIv https://t.co/OducPIAEEX
