As many people are returning from holiday gatherings, the demand for COVID-19 tests is growing.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is advising individuals to get a COVID-19 test if they’re experiencing symptoms. The CDC says this applies for people that are vaccinated or unvaccinated.

The CDC says those who have been in close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case should also get a test.

For individuals that are vaccinated, the CDC says to wait five to seven days after exposure. On the other hand, they say the unvaccinated should test immediately.

DoorDash resume’s WeDash program

DoorDash recently announced it’s enforcing a guideline again where it’s engineers, managers and top executives are required to make at least one food delivery a month

A DoorDash spokesperson told 6 News, this policy isn’t new and they only paused it during the pandemic.

Employee’s had mixed reactions to the news and one voiced their concerns on Blind. Blind is an app that lets people speak to others in their industry anonymously.

“I didn’t sign up for this, there was nothing in the offer letter/job description about this,” the post said.
