An N95 Is the Best Mask for Omicron. Here ’s Why
As health officials scramble to minimize spread of the highly contagious Omicron variant, many experts have recommended that people switch from cloth or surgical masks to more-protective N95 and KN95 masks. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) current mask guidance does not recommend one type of mask over another, instead specifying that people should wear a mask that fits snugly and covers the nose and mouth. CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said that fundamental guidance won’t change—despite recent reports to the contrary—but told reporters that the agency will soon publis...

Low sick pay is leaving school meals staff unable to self-isolate
Twenty of the biggest school catering companies are not giving full sick pay to staff, meaning that some of the lowest-paid staff in schools cannot afford to self-isolate because they’re being forced to rely on statutory sick pay (SSP). Statutory sick pay is just £96.35 a week, whereas full sick pay would mean that employers continue to pay someone their full wage when they are off sick. As schools reopen this January and the country tries to protect itself against further spread of the COVID-19 Omicron variant, UNISON has written to the 20 biggest companies to urge that they review their sick pay policies so s...
