White House, Congress to resume coronavirus talks on major issues
Top congressional Democrats and White House officials will try again on Thursday to find a compromise on legislation that would enable Congress to come to the aid of Americans reeling from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. As talks neared the end of their second week, the four principal negotiators appeared to be near agreement on some topics, but still trillions of dollars apart on major issues including the size of a federal benefit for tens of millions of unemployed workers. "We're trying to get a deal that's good for the American public and American workers," Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told reporters after nearly two hours of talks on Wednesday.

Before Biden Backed Out of Speech, COVID Was Detected at Convention Site
The same week that presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden formally canceled plans to give a convention speech in Milwaukee, the Democratic National Convention Committee detected three positive cases of COVID-19 at the site. "As testing increased this week, our system detected three cases which have been reported to the health department and given instructions to self-isolate," an aide to the convention told The Daily Beast. The aide confirmed that those individuals tested positive. Officials involved in convention planning say the decision to not host speeches from the site were not directly related to the positive test results there. But they did say that those tests underscored, for organizers, the risks that were inherent in hosting a convention in the midst of a pandemic. "The reason why they told folks to not travel is we'd been talking to health officials about it. And once we got the guidance from health officials that the pandemic was getting worse, we listened to them," said a top DNC official. For months, organizers had held on to the possibility of Biden addressing a crowd in Wisconsin, even as they dramatically cut back plans to have a traditional convention there. But on Wednesday, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez and convention CEO Joe Solmonese released a statement announcing the decision to go entirely virtual, citing ongoing desires to follow the same public health- and science-based standards they've maintained are important through the process.
