Good morning. As the COVID-19 pandemic takes a toll on life in America, our team at Future Majority is tracking the latest updates:
The Senate moved closer to passing COVID-19 relief:

The House could take up the measure as soon as today, and President Biden is set to meet with Democratic leadership and committee chairs in the lower chamber this morning to discuss the resolution.

Employers in the U.S. added only 49,000 jobs last month, a sign that the economy will continue to struggle as the virus continues to spread. January was the worst month on record for deaths due to COVID-19. While the unemployment rate dropped slightly from 6.7% to 6.3%, there are still 9.9 million fewer jobs than there were in February 2020. However, the addition of jobs is an improvement over December, when losses were 227,000.
