Amazon reinstates mask mandate as delta sweeps US

Published

on

Amazon is ordering all employees to mask up at work

Staff at all warehouses across the United States will now have to wear a mask at work regardless of their vaccination status.

As the delta variant of COVID-19 sweeps across the country, many companies including Amazon are expressing concern.

The largest online retailer reimposed the mask mandate as a precaution and at the advice of the CDC.

“We hope this will only be required for a few weeks,” according to the notice, which was previously reported by Bloomberg. The new mask mandate applies to all U.S. Amazon sites, including where state and local guidance doesn’t require face masks.

Amazon had been relaxing some of its coronavirus safety measures

In May, the company told warehouse workers they would no longer be required to wear a mask indoors if they were fully vaccinated.

Last month, it began to wind down Covid testing in U.S. warehouses.

Amazon has also extended its work-from-home dates for U.S. employees until January 3.

RBA maintains 4.35% rates as mortgage applications surge

Published

on

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has decided to keep its official cash rate at 4.35%, citing concerns over the rapidly increasing number of mortgage applications.

This decision comes after several consecutive meetings where the RBA has refrained from adjusting interest rates.

The central bank’s decision to hold rates steady reflects their cautious approach to managing the current housing market boom. Mortgage applications have seen a significant surge in recent months, driven by record-low interest rates and increased demand for housing. While this has been a boon for the real estate industry, it has raised concerns about the potential for a housing bubble and financial stability.

Experts are divided on whether the RBA’s decision is the right course of action.

Some argue that maintaining low-interest rates is necessary to support economic recovery, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Others worry that the continued surge in mortgage applications without rate adjustments could lead to unsustainable levels of household debt.

In light of this decision, homeowners, prospective buyers, and investors will be closely watching the housing market’s trajectory and wondering how long the RBA can maintain its current stance.

The decision comes after policyholders claimed the electric car company’s insurance division overcharged them for coverage.

The lawsuit, which was filed by a group of Tesla policyholders, alleges that the premiums charged by Tesla’s insurance unit were significantly higher than market rates for similar coverage.

The plaintiffs argue that Tesla’s insurance division engaged in unfair pricing practices, leading to overpayment by policyholders.

Tesla has not yet commented on the judge’s decision, but the lawsuit raises questions about the transparency and fairness of the company’s insurance pricing.

It also highlights the growing scrutiny on how tech companies enter and compete in traditional industries like insurance.
