ARCHAEOLOGISTS AND RESEARCHERS WILL BE DIGGING IN A MASS GRAVE OF POTENTIAL VICTIMS. AND TONY AND GOOD MORNING. SO TELL US MORE ABOUT THIS EFFORT. WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN AT THAT CEMETERY TODAY. >> GOOD MORNING, SAVANNAH. SO WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN HERE AT OAKLAWN CEMETERY TODAY IS ONE PART OF A TWO-PART ARCHAEOLOGICAL EFFORT UNDERWAY THROUGHOUT THIS AREA OF TULSA. SO ONE Part OF THAT Campaign IS AIMED AT FINDING STRUCTURES AT FINDING ARTIFACTS. PHYSICAL ITEMS THAT SCIENTISTS CAN LOOK AT TO PAINT A STORY OF WHAT PEOPLE OWNED. WE’RE Expend WHAT THEY MIGHT HAVE HAD ON THEM AT THE TIME OF THE MASSACRE THAT THEY HOPE WILL ELIMINATE THE STORIES WE’VE ALREADY HEARD FROM SURVIVORS AND THEN HERE AT OAKLAWN CEMETERY, THE 2ND HALF OF THAT EFFORT IS ACTUALLY GETTING ACCESS TO THE REMAINS OF POTENTIAL VICTIMS STUDYING THEM AND FINDING OUT WHAT STORY THEY HAVE TO TELL AND THE POTENTIAL DESCENDANTS WHO MAY STILL BE HERE IN TULSA OR ELSEWHERE AROUND THE COUNTRY WHO ARE CONNECTED TO THEM AND YOU KNOW, THIS IS A MAJOR UNDERTAKING THAT THE FULL PROCESS OF PULLING BODIES OUT OF THE GROUND AND THEN STUDYING THEM AND FINDING OUT, YOU KNOW WHAT THEIR CONNECTIONS MAY OR MAY NOT BE COULD TAKE MONTHS OR YEARS.I WANT YOU TO HEAR DIRECTLY FROM KARY STACKELBECK. SHE IS THE STATE ARCHAEOLOGIST OF OKLAHOMA AND SHE’S GOING TO BE ON THE GROUND TODAY. TAKE A LISTEN TO THIS. >> BEST Lawsuit SCENARIO WOULD BE IF WE COULD LEARN WHO THESE INDIVIDUALS ARE. WE WILL BE TAKING DNA SAMPLES IN THE HOPES THAT HE WILL BE ABLE TO EMPLOY THAT MCCAIN MEANS BEING ABLE TO PUT SOME NAMES TO THE INDIVIDUALS THAT WE FIND. BUT EVEN IF WE’RE UNABLE OR UNSUCCESSFUL IN THAT EFFORT. THERE’S STILL MANY THINGS THAT WE LEARNED ABOUT THESE INDIVIDUALS AND WE’LL LEARN SOMETHING MORE THAN WE DO KNOW ABOUT THEM RIGHT NOW. >> SO WHAT YOU’RE Departing TO SEE IS SCIENTISTS LIKE KARY STACKELBECK AND OTHERS ON THE GROUND WITH HEAVY MACHINERY. FIRST REMOVING SOIL AND THEN GOING IN WITH SMALL HAND TOOLS AND BRUSHES TO THE VERY CAREFUL CAREFUL WORK OF ACTUALLY REMOVING BODIES FROM THE GROUND. SAVANNAH. >> AND TONY, I KNOW A Spate OF THE PEOPLE THAT ARE GOING TO BE ON THE GROUND. THEY’RE INVOLVED IN TODAY’S STICK OR FROM TULSA WITH DEEP ROOTS IN THE CITY. HOUSE’S EFFORT IMPACTING THEM AS MEMBERS OF THIS COMMUNITY. >> THAT’S ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. IT DOES HAVE A DEEP IMPACT AND LOOK AT WITHIN THE BLACK COMMUNITY HERE IN TULSA, THERE IS OVERWHELMING SUPPORT FOR THIS EFFORT BECAUSE IT’S SEEN AS A MAJOR PART OF THE RECONCILIATION AND HEALING THAT PEOPLE ARE SO HOPEFUL FOR HERE FINDING OUT MORE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED TO WHAT’S GOTTEN ON TO FAMILIES, WHAT THEY LOST. THAT IS A MAJOR PART OF MAKING BLACK FAMILIES HERE FEEL WHOLE. BUT THERE’S Likewise ANXIETY THAT COMES WITH THAT. I MEAN, WE’RE LITERALLY DIGGING UP DIRT AND BRINGING Torso UP AND THAT MAKES SOME PEOPLE, FRANKLY YOU KNOW, ACTUALLY MET RESIDENTS AND DESCENDANTS HERE WHO TOLD ME THAT THEY’VE COME TO THE CEMETERY AND HAD SPIRITUAL OR FRIGHTENING EXPERIENCES IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY HERE TAKES THOSE STORIES VERY SERIOUSLY. TAKE A LISTEN TO THE SHE IS ALSO AN ARCHAEOLOGIST INVOLVED IN THIS BROADER EFFORTS AND SHE TOUCHES ON THIS. >> AS WELL. THE NATIVE TULSAN AS A MOM, SOMEONE WHO IS. SOMEWHAT CONNECTED TO THIS HISTORY. IT IS. KIND OF TROUBLING. AT THE SAME TIME IS THE >> YOU KNOW, WE ARE Distressing GROUND. WE’RE JUST GOING DISTURB SACRED GROUND, BUT WE’RE DOING IT IN IN ORDER TO LOOK AND FIND SO I THINK IT’S BOTH LIKE HUMBLING. Too CLEAR TROUBLING THAT WE’RE OUT HERE DOING A LOT OF THIS.BUT. THAT’S ALL WE’RE TRYING TO DO IS RESPECTFULLY AS POSSIBLE. >> SO WHAT WE’RE Travelling TO SEE HAPPEN HERE IS In addition to providing SCIENTISTS HERE ON THE GROUND. ARCHAEOLOGISTS Actually Excavating THERE’S Becoming TO BE COMMUNITY MEMBERS. PEOPLE WHO ARE PART OF AN OVERSIGHT BOARD. WE’RE ACTUALLY GOING TO PLAY A CRITICAL ROLE IN WORKING WITH ARCHAEOLOGISTS TO DECIDE WHAT HAPPENS TO REMAINS. WHAT HAPPENS TO ARTIFACTS.HOW MIGHT PEOPLE BE SAFELY AND RESPECTFULLY RE BURIED. AND WHERE WILL THEIR HERITAGE GOING POTENTIALLY MUSEUMS HERE IN TULSA AND THAT COMMUNITY COLLABORATION PIECE IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO THE ARCHAEOLOGISTS. I’M STILL IN GREAT INTERVIEW THERE. AND TONY. AND NOW I MENTIONED JUST A BIT AGO THAT PRESIDENT BIDEN WILL BE HEADING TO TULSA LATER TODAY. WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT HIS VISIT. PRESIDENT BIDEN IS EXPECTED TO LAND HERE AROUND MIDDAY AND HE’S GOING TO HEAD RIGHT TO THE GREENWOOD CULTURAL CENTER THAT’S AN IMPORTANT CULTURAL AND HISTORIC CENTER. THAT’S JUST A FEW MINUTES DOWN THE ROAD FROM WHERE I AM RIGHT NOW AND HE’S GOING TO MEET WITH COMMUNITY MEMBERS DESCENDANTS AND HE’S ALSO GOING TO GIVE A SPEECH AND WE’RE EXPECTED TO HEAR IN THAT SPEECH IS BIDEN IS GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE LEGACY OF RACISM OF INEQUALITY.HE’S GOING TO BE TOUCHING ON THE CONTINUED RACIAL WEALTH GAP BETWEEN BLACK AND WHITE AMERICANS AND TYING HIS UPCOMING POLICIES TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY HERE IN TULSA SAVANNAH.

DON’T YOU START THINKING OF THOSE PEOPLE HAVE GONE BEFORE YOU AT ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY THIS MEMORIAL DAY THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF SALUTING THE FALLEN WHO ARE FREE BECAUSE WERE BRAVE HEROES.

Expressed appreciation for. THEY SAID Expressed appreciation for BEEN SERVING OUR COUNTRY. SO MANY REMINDERS ABOUT THOSE WHO HAVE SACRIFICED FOR OUR FREEDOMS LIKE THIS FROM VIETNAM VETERAN ROBERT PARRA AT A COMMEMORATION IN CALIFORNIA RESPECT THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE SERVED. >> I HONOR THEM WHENEVER YOU CAN JUST BE THANKFUL THAT WE WERE OUT THERE FOR YOU. >> AND NOW THE MEMORIAL DAY IS THROUGH. LET’S GET A CHECK ON YOUR MORNING NEWS NOW. WEATHER FOR, YOU KNOW, THE REST OF THE TIME. YEAH. JUST HOPEFULLY LESS RAINY. BILL KAREN’S MORNING. >> YEAH. GOOD THE WEATHER ACROSS THE COUNTRY WAS DEFINITELY DIFFERENT FROM MEMORIAL DAY THAN PEOPLE IN NORTHEAST ARE BUNDLING UP DURING THE HEAT ON THEIR HOUSES. PEOPLE IN THE WEST FOR CRANKING THEIR A C AND THE SOGGY WEATHER CONTINUES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY.THIS HAS BEEN A BROKEN RECORD NOW ALL SPRING LONG. WE STILL HAVE FLASH FLOOD WATCH HAS BEEN A LOT OF HEAVY RAIN IN DALLAS OVERNIGHT. THINGS ARE BEGINNING TO Run dry. BUT I Recall ANOTHER ROUND OF RAIN IS STILL LIKELY THERE IN AREAS OF ARKANSAS THROUGH THE DAY. WE’VE ALSO SEEN THIS LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS NEAR SAN ANTONIO. LAREDO NOW APPROACHING CORPUS CHRISTI. SO ADDITIONAL RAINFALL WE COULD GET THE HIGHEST TOTALS FROM MEMPHIS UP THROUGH THE OHIO VALLEY POSSIBILITY 2 TO 3 Inches, BUT AT LEAST THE DALLAS OKLAHOMA AREA IS FINALLY Run dry. HOW ABOUT THE DANGEROUS HEAT IN THE WEST. TELL HEAT WARNINGS ARE IN EFFECT FOR THE VALLEY. VEGAS IS UNDER A HEAT WARNING AND THESE TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON ARE GOING TO SOURCES TOO EARLY IN THE SEASON, GUYS FOR TEMPERATURES LIKE THIS, BUT READING ONE’ 07, FRESNO 105, EVEN A FRIEND IN OREGON. WE’RE GOING TO BE IN THE 90′ S. SO EVENTUALLY THAT HE’S GOING TO SPREAD EAST. BUT IT’S A TAKE ABOUT A WEEK OR SO. GUYS. >> ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU, BILL. APPRECIATE IT. THANKS. THOSE IN A Chip. >> COMING UP, A NEW AND HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS CORONAVIRUS VARIANT HAS BEEN DETECTED IN VIETNAM WILL GO LIVE OVERSEAS FOR AN UPDATE NEXT. >> VIETNAM IS BANNING INCOMING INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS FROM TODAY FOR A WEEK AS IT BATTLES A SURGE IN CORONAVIRUS CASES RELATED TO A NEW VARIANT. THE GOVERNMENT SAYS THE HIGHLY TRANSMISSIBLE VARIANT IS A COMBINATION OF THOSE FIRST DISCOVERED IN THE UK AND INDIA. NBC NEWS FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT JANIS MACKEY FRAYER JOINS US FROM BEIJING WITH MORE ON THIS. JANICE, GOOD MORNING. SO UP TILL NOW VIETNAM HAD ACTUALLY AVOIDED MAJOR OUTBREAK.SO HOW WORRIED ARE OFFICIALS ABOUT THE SPIKE IN CASES AND WHAT’S BEING DONE TO STOP THE SPREAD OF THIS NEW VARIANT. >> THE SAVANNAH. THEY’RE VERY WORRIED ABOUT CONTAINING THIS THE VARIANT IS THIS HYBRID OF 2 OTHER VARIANTS MAKING IT VERY CONTAGIOUS. IT SPREADS QUICKLY THROUGH THE AIR HEALTH OFFICIALS. THEY’RE Call IT VERY DANGEROUS. THEY’RE GETTING HELP FROM THE W H O WITH MONITORING IN THE MEANTIME, DOING MASS TESTING IN BIG CITIES. THERE ARE CURFEWS RESTRICTIONS BUSINESSES ARE CLOSING DOWN EFFECTIVELY SEEING THE FIRST WHAT THEY’RE ALSO TRYING TO DO IS RAMP UP VACCINATIONS. THE PROBLEM WITH LIKE IN A LOT OF PLACES IN ASIA IS SUPPLY. THEY Precisely DON’T HAVE IT. NOT THROUGH NEGOTIATIONS WITH MODERNA. THEY HAVE SOME PFIZER VACCINE. THEY DON’T Demand TO TAKE VACCINES FROM CHINA. SO IT Wants THAT ONLY 1 MILLION Beings OUT OF A POPULATION OF 96 MILLION HAS BEEN VACCINATED SO FAR. SO THAT’S WHAT WORRIES OFFICIALS MOST AS THESE VARIANTS CONTINUE TO OUTPACE VACCINATIONS. >> YEAH, ABSOLUTELY. AND NOT JANICE THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION HAS ANNOUNCED A NEW NAMING METHOD FOR ALL THESE EMERGING GLOBAL VARIANCE TO CHOOSING THE GREEK ALPHABET RATHER THAN CALLING THEM BY THE COUNTRY. THEY WERE DISCOVERED IN LIKE WE’RE CALLING THEM THE UK VARIANT, THE INDIA VARIANT. TELL US ABOUT THAT AND WHY THEY’RE DOING IT. >> PRIMARILY THEY’RE DOING IT TO Clear IT THE SCIENTIFIC NAMES ARE HARD TO SAY. THEY’RE HARD TO REMEMBER, BUT THEY SAY THEY Also WANT TO REMOVE ANY STIGMA FOR THE COUNTRIES THAT ARE BEING VERY DILIGENT IN DC IN DETECTING THESE VARIANTS AND REPORTING THEM. IN A WHO ADDING PEOPLE OFTEN RESORT TO CALLING VARIANCE BY THE PLACES WHERE THEY ARE DETECTED, WHICH IS STIGMATIZING AND DISCRIMINATORY.SO AS AN EXAMPLE, THIS VIETNAM VERY IT WHICH HASN’T BEEN NAMED YET IS A HYBRID BETWEEN ALPHA AND DELTA. WHAT WE USED TO CALL THE UK IN INDIA, THE SOUTH AFRICA VARIANT IS NOW CALLED BETA AND BRAZIL IS CALLED GAMMA. >> RAY AND GENEROUS. LET’S NOT TALK ABOUT THE INVESTIGATION INTO THE ORIGINS OF COVID-1 9 THAT PRESIDENT BIDEN IS REALLY PUSHING FOR HER. WHAT’S THE LATEST ON HOW THAT’S BEING RECEIVED IN CHINA. >> WELL, CHINA ISN’T GOING TO OPEN THE DOORS AT ANY TIME SOON. LOOK, THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY OR INTERNATIONAL PARTNERS CAN COME UP WITH ANYTHING IN 90 Daytimes REMAINS A MYSTERY FROM CHINA’S PERSPECTIVE. THEY’VE DONE THEIR PART. THEY SAID THEY COOPERATED WITH THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION FOR THAT JOINT PROBE IN WUHAN AND FROM THEIR PERSPECTIVE, THE INVESTIGATION NOW NEEDS TO GO ELSEWHERE. NEEDS TO GIVE CLOSER SCRUTINY TO OTHER LABS, INCLUDING IN THE THE POSITION IS IT KNEW WHAT HAS CHANGED NOW IS THAT WE’RE SEEING THIS LIGHT LEAKS ERIE COME INTO THE MAINSTREAM TO GET CONSIDERATION ALONGSIDE THE ZOONOTIC SPILLOVER SCENARIO THAT Scientist HAVE BEEN FAVORING TILL NOW.BUT SCIENTISTS ARE ALSO QUICK TO POINT OUT, SAVANNAH, THAT THERE IS ALSO A VERY BIG POSSIBILITY THAT WE MAY NEVER HAVE ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO EXPLAIN HOW THIS ALL STARTED. >> I’M JANICE, THANK YOU SO MUCH. LET’S TURN TO ISRAEL WHERE PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU’S 12 YEAR GRIP ON POWER COULD SOON BE COMING TO AN END. THAT’S AFTER FAR-RIGHT POLITICIAN NAFTALI BENNETT AGREED TO FORM A COALITION WITH THE CENTRIST PARTY WHICH HAD BEEN TASKED WITH FORMING A GOVERNMENT BY TOMORROW’S DEADLINE BUT THIS COALITION STILL NEEDS THE SUPPORT OF PARTIES FROM ACROSS THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM IF THEY’RE TO SUCCEED IN OUSTING NETANYAHU. NBC NEWS CORRESPONDENT KELLY COBIELLA JOINS US NOW FROM TEL AVIV. SO, KELLY, FIRST OF ALL, WHAT IS THE LATEST ON THE COALITION TALKS AND HOW LIKELY IS IT THAT AN AGREEMENT IS REACHED BEFORE TOMORROW’S DEADLINE. >> WELL, JOE, THE PARTIES WERE ALL TALKING OVERNIGHT. WE UNDERSTAND THAT CAME CLOSE TO FINALIZING A DEAL AND PASSES. FEW HOURS. I Precisely GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH THE PRESS SPOKESPERSON FOR THE CENTRIST PARTY WHICH THE PARTY PULLING ALL OF DIFFERENT GROUPS TOGETHER. AND HE TOLD ME THAT THEY’RE REALLY JUST WORKING ON THE FINER DETAILS NOW. IT’S NOT ABOUT ANY BIG Publication THAT MIGHT HOLD THIS COALITION APART.SO IT LOOKS LIKE IT COULD HAPPEN SOONER RATHER THAN LATER. HE WAS FAIRLY CONFIDENT THAT IT WILL HAPPEN BY THAT WEDNESDAY DEADLINE AND IT COULD COME AT SOME POINT TODAY, ALTHOUGH HE WOULDN’T GIVE ME A TIMELINE. JOE. SO KELLY, A VARIETY OF PARTIES FROM ACROSS THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM COULD BE INVOLVED IN THIS NEW GOVERNMENT WHICH BEGS A LOT OF QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW WELL THEY’LL BE ABLE TO WORK TOGETHER, BUT Also WHAT COULD IT MEAN FOR PALESTINIANS AND ANY HOPES FOR A TWO-STATE SOLUTION. >> WELL, THE THE WAY THIS COALITION GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN SET UP. THERE Will be established. IS NAFTALI BENNETT TO THE RIGHT WING RIGHT WING POLITICIAN WILL BE PRIME MINISTER. FIRST. HE IS A Adult DOES NOT WHO IS VERY IS SIMILARLY A LINE TO BENJAMIN NETANYAHU. SO DOES NOT BELIEVE IN A TWO-STATE BELIEVES IN EXPANDING SETTLEMENTS IN THE WEST BANK. YOU KNOW, ON THE SURFACE, IT DOESN’T LOOK GREAT FOR THE PALESTINIAN CAUSE OR ANY LONG-TERM PEACE AGREEMENT IN THE NEAR FUTURE HAVING SAID THAT, YOU DO HAVE THIS VERY BROAD A COALITION WITH A DIFFERENT PARTIES SPANNING THE COMPLETE IDEOLOGICAL SPECTRUM. SO IT MAY BE THAT NOT MUCH AT ALL.GETS WHETHER IT HAS TO DO WITH SECURITY THE NAME IT BECAUSE THEY’RE SUCH A DIVERSE AND SORT OF ALMOST INEFFECTIVE GROUP PULLING ONE ANALYST HERE TOLD ME GLUE HOLDING THEM TOGETHER IS THEIR DESIRE TO GET NETANYAHU OUT. NOT NECESSARILY ANYONE POLICIES. SO NO, IT DOES NOT BODE WELL FOR ANY PROGRESS WHEN IT COMES TO THE PALESTINIAN CAUSE. JOE AND KELLY, SPEAKING OF NETANYAHU, HOW IS HE REACTING TO ALL THESE DEVELOPMENTS. AND IS THERE ANY WAY BACK FOR HIM RIGHT NOW. >> WELL, HE’S CALLED THIS GOVERNMENT A FAR LEFT GOVERNMENT. HE SAID THAT IT COULD THREATEN THE SECURITY OF ISRAEL. THOSE ARE KIND OF HIS ATTACK LINES AT THE SAME TIME. THERE ARE REPORTS THAT YESTERDAY HE REACHED OUT TO A COUPLE OF THESE POLITICIANS WHO HAVE JOINED THE COALITION AND OFFERED THEM POSITIONS IN A RIGHT GOVERNMENT. HOWEVER, AGAIN, THE PEOPLE WE SPOKE TO SAID, LOOK, HE’S BEEN IN POWER FOR 12 Years AND A Batch OF THESE Politicians HAVE Laboured WITH HIM AND HAVE.TAKEN ON BOARD HIS WORD IN THE PAST AND HAVE FALLEN AFOUL LIKE HE HAS SOME FOLLOW THROUGH. SO THEY SORT OF BEEN BURNED BY AN BEFORE THE LIKELIHOOD OF HIM BEING ABLE TO BUILD A COALITION. NOW IT’S PRETTY REALLY? THE ONLY CARD HE HAS LEFT TO PLAY IS IF ONE OF THESE POLITICIANS FOR SOME BIZARRE REASON. UNKNOWN REASON DECIDES TO DROP OUT THAT IS ALL IT WOULD Make IS ONE POLITICIAN LEAVING THE COALITION JOE, BUT FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND, THAT’S VERY UNLIKELY TO HAPPEN. >> I KELLY COBIELLA IN TEL AVIV. KELLY, THANK YOU SO MUCH. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT ELSE IS MAKING NEWS AROUND THE WORLD THIS MORNING. NBC NEWS CORRESPONDENT CLAUDIO LAVANGA JOINS US FROM AROUND. GOOD MORNING. >> MORNING, SAVANNAH. GOOD MORNING, JOE. WILL THE RECENT DISCOVERY OF THE REMAINS OF MORE THAN 200 CHILDREN IN A SCHOOL FOR INDIGENOUS PEOPLE IN CANADA HAVE GOT COLD HAS SPARKED WIDESPREAD CALLS FOR ACTION NOW. INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES ALL ACROSS THE NATION HAVE ASKED THE GOVERNMENT NOT ONLY FOR ANSWERS BUT ALSO FOR A NATIONWIDE SEARCH FOR POTENTIALLY OTHER MASS GRAVES IN SIMILAR ARRESTED IN SCHOOLS IN A KIND OF THAT.

ORGANIZERS HAD TO MOVE TO BRAZIL AT THE LAST MINUTE AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, LITTLE THE RARE IF NOT UNIQUE OUT PINE PARITY IN NEW ZEALAND APPARENTLY WASN’T TO ME MEANT WAS A MAN FINAL THOUGHT, AT LEAST ACCORDING TO A NEW RESEARCH THAT SAYS THAT THE PIRATES MOVED TO THE MOUNTAINS TO FLY AWAY FROM FROM HUMANS. BUT THEY Likewise Alarmed THAT THE THERE’S MANY OTHER SPECIES ARE NOW ENDANGERED BY CLIMATE CHANGE. IS IT TO SAY THAT A BIRD CAN FLY AWAY FROM SCHUMANN’S. BUT THEY CANNOT FLY AWAY FAR ENOUGH TO ESCAPE DAMAGE THAT WE’RE DOING TO THE ENVIRONMENT. GUYS. YEAH. WOW. >> YOU CAN Moment. YEAH. BUT THEY STILL GOT A PHOTO OF IT. SO SUCCESSFULLY >> MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND BROUGHT HEAVY RAIN TO PARTS OF THE COUNTRY BUT NOT A DROP WHERE IT’S NEEDED MOST NBC NEWS CORRESPONDENT GADI SCHWARTZ HAS THE LATEST ON THE DEVASTATING DROUGHT PLAGUING THE SOUTHWEST. >> ACROSS THE AMERICAN WEST. THERE IS A DROUGHT. SO VAST THAT STRETCHES FROM FIRE RAVAGED CALIFORNIA TO DRYING LAKES RIVERS AND WELLS IN UTAH, ARIZONA, COLORADO AND NEVADA. IN NEW MEXICO ON A RANCH ALONG THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE CATTLE PASS TO A POND THAT HAS BEEN BONE DRY FOR YEARS. NORMALLY THIS POND WOULD HAVE WATER PROBABLY. >> 10 MONTHS OUT OF THE YEAR. LIKE MOST SURROUNDING STATES ABOUT 80% OF NEW MEXICO IS UNDER EXTREME DROUGHT PART OF WHAT SCIENTISTS NOW CONSIDER A MEGA DROUGHT BROUGHT ON BY THE CHANGING CLIMATE. >> AND ON THIS RANCH, IT’S BEEN Roughly 6 Times SINCE THEY’VE SEEN MEASURABLE RAINFALL. CASEY SPREAD LEADER FAMILY BEEN RAISING CATTLE HERE FOR OVER A CENTURY. WHEN YOU OWN A PIECE OF LAND AS LONG AS MY FAMILY’S ON THIS THAT WE MADE LITERALLY CAME AND A COVERED WAGON. EVERYTHING HERE. THEY BUILT. THEY DEVELOPED EVERY WATER SOURCE DOUG, EVERY WELL BUILT EVERY EVENTS. SO. >> YOU DON’T Crave TO BE THE GENERATION THAT LOSES IT. >> LAST Time. THE DROUGHT FORCED THE FAMILY TO SELL OFF A 3RD OF THEIR HEARD THIS MONTH. THEY MAY BE FORCED TO SELL ANOTHER 20%. WE Likewise TALK ABOUT THAT DEADLINE. IF WE GET RAIN. BUT WHAT DAY CALL IT QUITS. YOU KNOW, WHEN WHEN YOU ONLY GO SO FAR THAT YOU KELLS WORTH ANYTHING ANYMORE. SO WHAT’S THAT DATE FOR YOU THIS YEAR. IF IT DOESN’T TURN AROUND OUR GRASP A 4TH OF JULY THAN IT’S GOING TO BE SPLIT. >> AND IT’S NOT JUST RANCH IN NEW MEXICO STATE OFFICIALS ARE ASKING FARMERS NOT TO PLANT THIS YEAR IF THEY CAN AFFORD NOT TO. >> IT’S NOT ENOUGH FARMERS DNA TO DRIVE BY A DRY. >> BUT SAID THEY’RE DOING NOTHING.GOING TO CANNES GROWS.

COMING UP MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND MAY HAVE FELT A LITTLE MORE NORMAL EXPERTS WARNING. WE’RE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET. THE STATE OF COVID HERE IN THE U.S. ACCORDING TO DOCTOR ANTHONY FAUCI NEXT. >> A LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT PLANE TURNED A HIGHWAY NEAR LOS ANGELES INTO A LANDING STRIP VIDEO CAPTURED MONDAY SHOWS THE SINGLE ENGINE PLANE LANDING ON A BUSY HIGHWAY. ONE O ONE. THE CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL SAID IT TOUCHED DOWN AROUND 07:00 PM LOCAL TIME ABOUT 35 MILES NORTH OF LA. NO ONE WAS INJURED. THE REASON FOR THE EMERGENCY LANDING WAS NOT CLEAR. AND NOW A POLICE DID NOT IMMEDIATELY RESPOND TO REQUEST FOR COMMENT. BUT CONSIDERING THAT STILL AROUND RUSH HOUR TIME. WE’RE IN LA RECENTLY TRAFFIC’S BACK TO CERTAINLY AS IT IS HERE, TOO. BUT THAT IS AMAZING TO SEE. THESE ARE. ALL RIGHT. THANKS, JOHN. >> A MEMORIAL DAY FELT LIKE A RETURN TO SOME NORMALCY ACROSS THE COUNTRY, INCLUDING IN PENNSYLVANIA WERE COVID RESTRICTIONS HAVE BEEN LIFTED IN MOST OF THE STATE BUT NOT IN THEIR LARGEST CITY. PHILADELPHIA. THAT IS WHERE WE FIND NBC NEWS NOW CORRESPONDENT. MORE APPARENT MARA. Good morning. SO EXPLAIN WHAT’S GOING ON HERE.WHAT RESTRICTIONS HAVE BEEN LIFTED OUTSIDE OF PHILADELPHIA AND WHEN WILL THE CITY FOLLOW SUIT. SOME MEMORIAL DAY YESTERDAY MARKS THE START OF OUR CAPACITY RESTRICTIONS ACROSS THE STATE WITH THE EXCEPTION OF PHILADELPHIA OPENING TO A 100% CAPACITY BARS RESTAURANTS EVENT. VENUES AND OUTDOOR Activity ALL CAN OPERATE AT FULL CAPACITY. THAT WAS THE EXCEPTION WITH PHILADELPHIA WHICH WILL ACTUALLY LIFT THEIR RESTRICTIONS TOMORROW.AND THIS WAS A SURPRISE ANNOUNCEMENT JUST BEFORE THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND. THEY WERE Guessed TO WAIT ANOTHER COUPLE LEAST BEFORE THEY LIFTED THOSE RESTRICTIONS BECAUSE THE CITY HAS STRUGGLED WITH COVID MORE THAN THE REST OF THE STATE, BUT BECAUSE THEIR COVID CASES HAVE BEEN DECLINING SO RAPIDLY IN THE CITY THAT THEY ANNOUNCED THAT THOSE RESTRICTIONS WILL BE LIFTED TOMORROW AS WELL. AND THIS IS INTERESTING BECAUSE PENNSYLVANIA HIT THIS MILESTONE ACTUALLY IN THE TOP 10 OF STATES ACROSS THE COUNTRY WHEN IT COMES TO 70% OF ADULTS.HAVING AT LEAST ONE DOSE OF THE VACCINE STAR HAD A LOT OF OTHER Mood. BUT THE THING THAT WE NEED TO WATCH IS EVEN IN CITIES LIKE PHILADELPHIA THERE’S ONLY 45% OF THE COMMUNITY THEY’RE VACCINATED. THERE’S A 3RD OF THE County HERE IN PENNSYLVANIA WHERE LESS THAN 60%, OF Adults HAVEN’T EVEN RECEIVED ONE ITS Parish LIKE THAT WHERE VACCINE HESITANCY AS HIGH THAT AS WE GO INTO THE SUMMER, THINGS ARE REOPENING THAT WE’RE GOING TO NEED TO WATCH FOR FURTHER SPREAD. AND THAT’S WHAT DOCTORS SAY. WE NEED TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT EVEN AS MASK MANDATES AND ALL THAT KIND OF STUFF ARE LISTED. ABSOLUTELY. AND NOW Limited WERE LIFTED JUST YESTERDAY, THOUGH, IN TIME FOR MEMORIAL DAY CELEBRATIONS. >> I KNOW WE SAW YESTERDAY YOU WERE ACTUALLY AT A PARADE THAT HAVE BEEN CANCELED, BUT THEN WAS ABLE TO BE BACK ON. ONE SAYS Limiteds WERE LIFTED. WHAT WAS THE MOOD LIKE? >> HAPPY ASSIGNMENT. I Get TO DO YESTERDAY, BECAUSE I WAS EXPECTING EVERYONE TO BE EXCITED. AND AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I SAW WAS ALSO MORE EMOTIONAL THAN I THINK ANYONE WAS ANTICIPATING OBVIOUSLY WAS A SOMBER MOOD WATCHING THE VETERANS WALK IN THE PARADE.BUT THERE WAS ALSO DANCING AND MUSIC AND COLORS ARE BAND MARCHING BANDS. AND IT WAS THE EXCITED MOOD IN THE TOWN. BUT I Too WATCHED AS NEIGHBORS WHO HADN’T SEEN EACH OTHER IN MORE THAN A Time HUGGED EACH OTHER. RECONNECTED AND GOT TO SEE EACH OTHER’S FACES BECAUSE THEY WERE OUTSIDE AND WHAT WEARING THEIR MASK. I Crave TO HEAR FROM SOME PEOPLE THAT I TALK TO WHO DESCRIBED HOW THEY WERE FEELING ABOUT BEING BACK OUTSIDE AGAIN. >> IT’S A GREAT DAY. >> FINALLY BE OUT AND SEE EVERYBODY. IT’S BEEN A HAS SETTLED. AND THANKFULLY, EVERYBODY WAS ABLE TO COME TOGETHER TODAY AND WE’RE EXCITED.THE KIDS ARE REALLY EXCITED WERE SAID TO BE AMONGST FRIENDS AND FAMILY AND EVERYBODY GET TOGETHER AND JUST ENJOY BEING CLOSE WHAT ABOUT YOU, HOW YOU ABOUT THE SUMMER. I’M Genuinely Evoked >> AND SOME CHILDREN THAT WERE THERE WITH THEIR FAMILIES AS WELL. THEY Exactly SAID THEY’RE EXCITED TO GO VISIT GRANDMA AND GRANDPA THEY’RE EXCITED TO PLAY WITH THEIR FRIENDS IN THE POOL. BUT THEY KNOW THAT THEY HAVE TO STAY SAFE BECAUSE THEY SAW WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THE SCHOOLS CLOSED AND I WERE ABLE TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL AND THEY JUST KEPT SAYING WE’RE OK WITH WEARING MASKS WE’RE OKAY WITH WITH BEING SAY, BUT WE Exactly Demand TO SEE OUR FRIENDS, OUR FAMILY AGAIN.THEY’RE LOOKING FOR TO A SAFE SUMMER. SAVANNAH. >> HE SAID IT BEST. THAT’S FOR SURE. WE’RE ALL EXCITED. ALL RIGHT, MARK, THANK YOU SO MUCH. >> A MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND DID LOOK A LOT LIKE HOLIDAYS BEFORE THE PANDEMIC. BUT HEALTH OFFICIALS WARN IT’S STILL TOO SOON TO TOTALLY CELEBRATE JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY SAYS COVID CASES IN THE U.S. HAVE DROPPED 53% OVER THE PAST MONTH. BUT CASE NUMBERS ARE STILL HIGH AMONG THOSE WHO ARE NOT VACCINATED CASES ARE ALSO STILL GROWING GLOBALLY.SCIENTISTS DISCOVERED THOSE NEW VARIANTS. LET’S GET RIGHT TO NBC NEWS NOW CORRESPONDENT DOSH BURNS WITH THE LATEST PANDEMIC HEADLINES. SO DOSH. WE’RE NOW HEARING CONCERNS FROM DOCTOR ANTHONY FAUCI. WHAT IS HE SAYING ABOUT THE STATE OF THE VIRUS HERE IN THE U.S .. >> HEY, JOE, GOOD MORNING. WELL, LIKE YOU MENTIONED CASES ARE GROWING GLOBALLY, WHICH IS IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER, IN FACT, ALREADY IN 2021 THERE HAVE BEEN MORE GLOBAL CASES OF COVID-1 9 THAN IN ALL OF 2020 ACCORDING TO DATA FROM JOHNS HOPKINS.AND SO DOCTOR ANTHONY FAUCI TOLD THE GUARDIAN THAT WE DON’T WANT TO DECLARE A PREMATURE VICTORY SAYING WE STILL HAVE A WAYS TO GO. BUT THE MORE AND MORE PEOPLE THAT CAN GET VACCINATED AS A COMMUNITY. THE COMMUNITY WILL BE SAFER AND SAFER. HE Likewise SAID THAT AS LONG AS THERE STILL SOME DEGREE OF ACTIVITY WORLDWIDE EACH. THERE’S STILL THAT CONCERN ABOUT EMERGING VARIANTS AND THE U.S. HAS ALSO BEEN UNDER SOME PRESSURE TO DO MORE AND THAT GLOBAL VACCINATE. POLK SAID RECENTLY BUDGING 80 BILLION VACCINES IN ADDITION OR 80 MILLION Vaccines, RATHER, IN ADDITION TO 4 BILLION DOLLARS KOVACS, WHICH IS THE GLOBAL VACCINE SHARING PROGRAM. >> YES. SPEAKING OF THE GLOBAL EFFORT, THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION IS NOW CALLING FOR THE EASING OF TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS. FOR VACCINATED. PEOPLE. WHAT WOULD THAT LOOK LIKE. >> WELL, IT COULD LOOK A LITTLE BIT MORE LIKE NORMAL. THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION PROPOSED THAT BILL WILL HAVE BEEN VACCINATED SHOULD BE EXEMPT FROM TESTING AND QUARANTINE RESTRICTIONS WHEN TRAVELING FROM ONE EU COUNTRY TO ANOTHER. THE PROPOSAL. Likewise SUGGEST THAT PEOPLE WHO HAVE RECOVERED FROM COVID-1 9 SHOULD BE EXEMPT FOR 180 DAYS AND KIDS WHO AREN’T YET ELIGIBLE TO BE VACCINATED SHOULD BE EXEMPT WHEN TRAVELING WITH AN ADULT WHO IS EXEMPT. THEY SHOULD Really INSTEAD OF TEST AND DASH A RETURN TO NORMAL ALSO MEANS MORE CONCERTS ANY CUTS OR DID SOMETHING WE’RE STARTING TO SEE IN SOME PLACES IN THE U.S. BUT IN FRANCE. >> Scientists ARE ACTUALLY TESTING OUT. HOW CROWDED LIVE EVENTS WOULD WORK IN A PANDEMIC WORLD. WHAT EXACTLY ARE THEY DOING. >> YEAH, AN INTERESTING EXPERIMENT THERE, IN PARIS OVER THE WEEKEND. THERE WAS A SO-CALLED TEST CONCERT TO EXPERIMENT WITH HOW MUCH FANS COULD REALLY GO BACK TO NORMAL. ATTENDEES DID HAVE TO WEAR MASKS AND THEY HAVE TO SHOW PROOF OF A NEGATIVE COVID-1 9 Test. BUT AS YOU CAN SEE THERE, THEY DID NOT HAVE TO SOCIALLY DISTANCE ABOUT 5,000 PEOPLE WERE ALLOWED TO ACTUALLY GO TO THE CONCERT BUT GET THIS 2500 PEOPLE VOLUNTEERS STAYED HOME AS A CONTROL GROUP TO SEE AND COMPARE HOW MUCH COVID-1 9 SPREAD IN THAT GROUP VERSUS THE CONCERT GOERS.THOSE FOR FOLKS AT HOME REALLY FALLING ON THEIR SWORD, THEIR >> STILL FOR THOSE WHO WENT TO A FUN TASK. THAT’S THE TYPE OF TEST THAT THEY WOULDN’T MIND EXACTLY THANKS SO MUCH. >> AND BBC NEWS MEDICAL CONTRIBUTOR DOCTOR KAVITA PATEL JOINS US NOW. DOCTOR PATEL. Good morning. ALWAYS GREAT TO HAVE YOU. SO WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THAT STUDY. THIS Research CONCERT IN PARIS COULD MASKS BE THE NORM FOR EVENTS LIKE THIS VACCINATED OR NOT. YOU Feel THIS A SAFE. WHAT’S YOUR TAKE? >> YEAH, THE Good morning TO BOTH OF YOU. AND I Believe IT’S INTERESTING. I Imagine WE Time HAVE TO PUT IT IN THE CONTEXT OF LIFE WHERE THE COUNTRY ARE IN THEIR CURRENT PROCESS. THE VACCINATION, THE EU CERTAINLY BEHIND UNITED State OF AMERICA AND THEY’RE NOT A LOT OF COUNTRIES THAT ARE AT THE U.S. IS LEVELS OF VACCINATION. SO I DO THINK AND YOU’RE GOING TO SEE KIND OF PATCHWORK WHERE SOME Lieu ARE GOING TO JUST HAVE MASK THIS PART OF THE NORM, By the way, THAT VERY COMMONPLACE IN ASIA ALMOST YEAR ROUND. AND THEN YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE LIKE WE’RE SEEING IN THE UNITED Nation. LARGE GATHERINGS WHERE PEOPLE ARE BEING ASKED TO SHOW PROOF OF VACCINATION TO COME THE CONCERT AND YOU CAN HEAD TO HAVE HERE AROUND MASK FREE. SO I FEEL LIKE WE’RE AIRING MORE TOWARD SIDE OF THINGS ARE GETTING SAFER HERE. WE’LL START TO CONSISTENTLY RELAX. MATT MASK RESTRICTION STUDIES LIKE THE ONE IN FRANCE ARE GOING TO TELL US A LOT.AND BY THE WAY, WE’VE SEEN OTHER VENUES THAT DID NOT HAVE THOSE MASK REQUIREMENTS IN THE EU AND THEY DID HAVE A HOT SPOT, AN OUTBREAK. SO IT’S A NATURAL REACTION LIBERATE THE VACCINATION. >> DOCTOR. BUT I Likewise Demand ASK YOU ABOUT THE NEW NAMING SYSTEM IN THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION IS USING FOR VARIANTS THAT WE DISCUSSED EARLIER. SO THEY’RE USING THE GREEK ALPHABET. THERE HAVE BEEN CONCERNS THAT LABELING VARIANCE BY THE COUNTRIES THAT THEIR FIRST FOUND. IT COULD Establish THE STIGMA. DO YOU THINK CHANGING THE NAMING SYSTEM IS THE RIGHT MOVE AND ALSO JUST HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT WHERE WE’RE AT RIGHT NOW IN A RACE TO VACCINATE TO STAY AHEAD OF THESE VARIANTS. >> YEAH, I DID. I DO. I WAS HAPPY TO BE IN THE NAMES KIND OF CHANGE THAT WHO MADE THE RIGHT DECISION. IT’S SIMPLER AND HE SAID IT TAKES AWAY THE STIGMA. I’M WAITING HOPING TO GET TO THAT OMEGA, THOUGH. THE EVER ENDING KIND OF MARY AND TO BE THE LAST ONE THAT WE EVER AT THIS PANDEMIC, BUT IT DOES MAKE IT SIMPLER TO TALK ABOUT IT WITHOUT US BEING THAT B, 1, 1, 7, THAT’S NOW DOMINANT HERE IN THE ALL RIGHT.AND DOCTOR PATEL, THE CDC SAYS FULLY VACCINATED, PEOPLE. >> NO LONGER NEED TO WEAR MASKS. BUT WE DO STILL SEE THEM ON PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION. WE’RE STILL SUPPOSED TO WEAR THEM ON PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION. HERE’S WHAT TRANSPORTATION SECRETARY PETE BUTTIGIEG SAID ABOUT THAT OVER THE WEEKEND. >> Area OF IT HAS TO DO WITH THE CONDITIONS OF BEING A WORKPLACE FOLKS WHO REALLY DON’T HAVE A CHOICE ABOUT BEING THERE THE WAY IT IS IN SOME OTHER CASES, OF THESE RULES AND AND THESE Form OF GUIDANCE ALWAYS INVOLVED WITH THE SCIENCE.BUT THE BOTTOM LINE IS WE HAVE A SET OF RULES IN PLACE TO KEEP PEOPLE SAFE. >> SO HE SAYS THERE IT COULD Evolve WITH THE SCIENCE. WHEN YOU Consider LIKE THAT COULD CHANGE AND IT’S GIVEN THE CHOICE IN THE FUTURE. DO YOU THINK PEOPLE ARE GOING TO CHOOSE TO WEAR MASKS ON PLANES AND TRAINS. >> I DO THINK PEOPLE WILL CHOOSE TO WEAR MASKS AND CERTAINLY I’LL BE HONEST, EVEN DURING I WENT A YEAR AND A HALF ABOUT A COLD WHICH IS THING FOR FOR MOST AMERICANS. SO I Fantasize THERE WILL BE PEOPLE, INCLUDING ME THAT DURING KIND OF HEIGHT OF COLD AND FLU PROBABLY WEAR A MASK JUST BECAUSE I DON’T WANT A COLD AND I DO THINK THAT SOMETHING THAT THE SECRETARY DIDN’T GET TO MENTION SEPTEMBER 13 TH IS WHEN THE TRANSPORTATION AGENCIES HAVE SET THEIR EXPIRATION DEADLINE AND PART OF THAT ISN’T BEING SPOKEN ABOUT IS THAT THE UNITED Regime DOESN’T HAVE JUST DOMESTIC TRAVEL IN A BUBBLE.WE’VE GOT PEOPLE COMING AND GOING FROM GLOBAL PLACES. SO AS LONG AS WE HAVE AND WE LEARNED THIS THE HARD WAY IN 2020 AS LONG AS WE DO NOT HAVE THE KIND OF CONSISTENT MITIGATION STRATEGIES IN OUR MOST VULNERABLE SPOTS WHICH ARE TRAVEL. WE’RE GOING TO PUT OURSELVES AT RISK UNTIL WE DO GET TO THOSE LOWER CASES. I’M HOPING THAT WE’LL SEE CASES IN THE LOW. THOUSANDS TO HUNDREDS AND THAT PROBABLY WILL GET ITS BY OR SEPTEMBER. WHEN WE Attend THIS EXPIRE AND THEN MASKS WILL BE LIFTED. >> ALL RIGHT, DOCTOR PATEL, WE COVERED A LOT THERE. THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE. IT. >> COMING UP, YES, WEDDING SEASON IS UPON US. AND YES, THE BUSINESS IS BOOMING. THANKS TO RELAX COVID RESTRICTIONS. SO THAT COSTS ARE SKYROCKETING. WE’VE Go THAT AND TIPS ON HOW YOU CAN CELEBRATE WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK NEXT. >> WEDDING SEASON IS IN OVERDRIVE. MANY COUPLES ARE FORCED TO POSTPONE THEIR CELEBRATIONS BECAUSE OF THE PANDEMIC.

SENIOR BUSINESS CORRESPONDENT STEPHANIE RUHLE HAS MORE. THE PRICE YOU PAY. LIKE SO MANY BRIDES SUZANNE MARTIN POSTPONE HER WALK DOWN THE AISLE BECAUSE OF COVID. >> OCTOBER 2020 WAS OUR DAY AND THEN AROUND JUNE 2020 WAS WHEN WE CHOSE TO PUSH IT.

ALMOST HALF OF WEDDINGS IN TWENTY-TWENTY WERE POSTPONED SENDING DEMAND SKYROCKETING THIS YEAR TRYING TO FIND THAT HAPPY MEDIUM OF WHAT YOU’RE OKAY WITH SPENDING NOW AS OPPOSED TO WHAT YOU WERE IN FOR A IT’S Wedding DAY.ESSENTIALS IMPACTED BY INFLATION AND SUPPLY CHAIN ISSUES SINCE LAST APRIL.

IT’S ABOUT THE LOVE CELEBRATE WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK STEPHANIE RUHLE. NBC NEWS, NEW YORK. >> CRUISE SHIPS ARE NOW FACING A NEW BATTLE IN THEIR EFFORTS TO SET SAIL FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MORE THAN A YEAR. OPERATORS WHO SAIL OUT OF FLORIDA’S LARGE SOUTHERN PARTS WANT TO REQUIRE COVID VACCINATIONS, BUT UNDER AN ORDER SIGNED BY GOVERNOR RON DE SANTIS BACK IN APRIL. Professions ARE NOT Admitted TO ASK ABOUT VACCINATION STATUS. LET’S BRING IN BRITAIN EACH ANXIOUS TO TRAVEL BUSINESS NEWS REPORTER FOR BUSINESS INSIDER BRITAIN. GOOD MORNING. SO THIS IS ONE OF FLORIDA’S BIGGEST INDUSTRIES AND YOU REPORTED LAST MONTH THAT THE CEO OF NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE SAYS CONSIDERING NOT SAILING OUT OF FLORIDA. IF THE STATE DOESN’T ALLOW THEM TO REQUIRE VACCINATION. SO WHAT KIND OF IMPACT BECAUSE THIS COULD THIS HAVE ON THE CRUISE LINE INDUSTRY. IF THEY DECIDE TO DITCH THE SUNSHINE STATE. THAT Implies YOU Review THAT COULD REALISTICALLY HAPPEN. >> YEAH. I MEAN, THERE IS A Possibility THIS COULD HAPPEN CRUISE LINES THAT HAVE ANNOUNCED VACCINE THAT AND THOSE ARE PRETTY FIRM WITH CREATES TRAVEL BUBBLE.HIS PASSENGERS PEACE OF MIND. BUT AS A REGION CEO SAID IN EARLY MAY, NORWEGIAN HAS BEEN IN TALKS WITH THE CENSUS OFFICE REGARDING THIS PROBLEM. BUT ULTIMATELY CRUISE SHIPS CAN MOVE AND FORESIGHT CAN OPT TO OPERATE OUT OF ANOTHER STATE OR ANOTHER COUNTRY. A REAL DID SAY THAT HE HOPES THIS WILL BE THE CASE BECAUSE HOW PROFITABLE THE START OF MARKET IS FOR DOING. WE COULD Read CRUISE LINES TRY TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION ON THIS. YEAH, YOU KNOW, I See IT’S KIND OF HARD TO CRUISE LINES AND A SENSE HIS OFFICE ARE QUITE FROM THEIR AND THEY HAVE BEEN IN TALKS EACH OTHER. BUT ONCE AGAIN, ESTA REAL SAID THERE’S A CHANCE OF THIS IS, YOU KNOW, STATE VERSUS FEDERAL ISSUE AND STATE LAWS MIGHT APPLY TO THOSE LINES. ALTHOUGH I Imagine EVERYONE KIND IT’S ALL BECOME A BIG POLITICAL AND LEGAL BATTLE. >> NOW WE KNOW HOW MUCH TOURISM MEANS TO FLORIDA’S ECONOMY. IT LIKE SO MANY OTHER THINGS TOOK A HIT DURING THE PANDEMIC, BUT IT’S ALREADY COMING BACK. CAN THE STATE’S TOURISM INDUSTRY THRIVE WITHOUT CRUISES. >> YEAH. YOU KNOW, AS YOU SAID, I Study WE’VE ALL SEEN A LOT OF PEOPLE TRAPPED FLORIDA AGAIN, HOTELS ARE BOOKING UP FAST RATE. SO THE ECONOMY OBVIOUSLY IS NOT WHOLLY RELIANT ON THE CRUISE INDUSTRY ALONE. BUT IT IS A MULTIBILLION DOLLAR Industry AND THE STATE REALLY BENEFITS FROM THIS. YOU KNOW, SO MANY CRUISE SHIPS OFF OR EMBARK FROM FLORIDA. BUT, YOU KNOW, AS A SENTENCE IN THE SOUTH SAID WHEN HE ANNOUNCED HE WAS GOING TO BE SUING THE CITY THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF FLORIDIANS DEPEND ON THE INDUSTRY OR INCOME. SO DEFINITELY IS A SUBSTANTIAL ASPECT OF THE TOURISM INDUSTRY IN THE STATE. >> NOW BRITAIN AND SOME OF THE FIRST COVID OUTBREAKS WERE ON CRUISE SHIPS. I MEAN, WE REMEMBER SEEING PASSENGERS STUCK ON THEM FOR WEEKS AS THEY WERE QUARANTINING. I WASN’T SURE THE CRUISE INDUSTRY WOULD BOUNCE BACK BECAUSE PEOPLE WOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT SOMETHING LIKE THAT. BUT THE INDUSTRY WANTS TO MAKE SURE THEY’RE SAILING SAFELY AND THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO GET BACK ON THEM. WHAT COULD CRUISE SHIPS LOOK LIKE IN A PANDEMIC WORLD. HOW DO YOU GET ON ONE OF THOSE AND STAY SAFE. >> YEAH. AND I THINK IT’S ALSO ONCE AGAIN PRETTY HARD TO SO MANY THINGS HAPPENED DURING BUT A Batch OF THESE CRUISE LINES ARE STILL TRYING TO FINALIZE THEIR HEALTH PROTOCOLS AND SAFETY PROTOCOLS AS THEY RESUME SELLING BUT, YOU KNOW, THERE IS A Occasion WE COULD SEE ON CRUISE SHIPS ON MICE AS A FULLY VACCINATED CREWS. THERE ARE SOME PRESIDES AT INSTEAD OF ANNOUNCING SWEEPING VACCINE MANDATES FOR YOU GAS HAD JUST ISOLATED CRUISE SHIPS THAT DO SELL FULLY VACCINATED WITHOUT A SWEEPING COMPANYWIDE VACCINE MANDATE.I THINK A LOT OF THIS DEPENDS. AND I Recall WE’LL REALLY SEE EXACTLY WHAT AND CRUISE SHIPS WILL LOOK LIKE IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS. YOU KNOW, AS EARLY AS JUNE. NOW. >> ALL RIGHT. BRITTANY, THANK YOU SO MUCH. >> Come through here, THE WELCOME REVIVAL OF ONE OF NEW YORK CITY’S MOST ICONIC BLOCKS AND HOW BAR WORKERS IN THE EAST VILLAGE IS SAINT MARKS PLACE NAVIGATED A CRISIS LIKE NO OTHER.

IT’S GREAT. BUT IT Builds A REAL DIFFERENCE ELSE BECAUSE WE CAN FEEL THE BAR WITH >> WILL SOON HAVE TO REOPEN SIDE.

HE Attempted TO DO YOU KNOW, KEEP SIX-FEET THAT GOVERNMENT OR WHAT CUOMO, YOU KNOW, GOVERNOR CUOMO, THE STATE IS CHANGING DOESN’T REALLY CHANGE OUR DAY TODAY SO A HOSPITABLE AND IT’S EVERY STEP IS A STEP I DON’T SEE NORMALCY BECAUSE I THINK IT’S BETTER THAN THUS FAR HAS BEEN AROUND FOR SO LONG I MEAN, REALLY KNOWS. DEFINITELY WAS A THAT HE TOOK TIME MARK SAYS THE WINTER WHEN IT’S COLD AND LIKE YOU COULDN’T SIT INDOORS. AND I WAS Certainly TOUGH. NOT LIKE THE PEOPLE. >> AND THE VIOLENCE IN MARKS GREATLY EVERY ONE OF THE GREAT TOWARDS IS AGAIN, THE MEDIA ASPECT THINGS.IT’S LIKE READING PRO COME TOGETHER AS ONE Constitution Cards WORK TOGETHER. ESPECIALLY OVER THEY WOULD EACH OTHER ANY ISSUES ON THE STREETS. THAT’S THE WAY IT’S BEEN GREAT. IT’S BEEN A TEASE. IT’S IT’S EASY TO MAKE THE MATTER LIGHT OF PANDEMIC. PEOPLE STILL COME TOGETHER CHANGED OUR BUSINESS MODEL. WE WERE. >> JUST ALONG WITH DAILY BASIS ITS I GUESS IT Exits PEOPLE OR SO. BUT IT’S Obliged ME AND COST BETTER OPERATORS AROUND THE TRAINING WE WERE HAVING OVER HERE DIFFICULT HAS WE’RE I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE LIKE THE ROARING CITY VARIANCE IN TRYING TO HELP PEOPLE IT AND A TREE MORNING. >> BUT AGAIN, LIKE WE’VE ADOPTED THE FINALLY.
