Even as more than 183 million Americans have already received at least one dose of the virus vaccine, cases are continuing to increase, especially among the younger crowd, because that cohort hasn’t necessarily gotten their shot yet. But some experts worry that this is only the beginning, and look at the skyrocketing cases in Michigan as a potential warning for the rest of the country.

According to one doctor: “Michigan is really the bellwether for what it looks like when the B.1.1.7 variant … spreads in the United States. It’s causing a surge in cases and it’s causing more severe disease, which means that even younger people, people in their 30s, 40s and 50s are getting very sick and being hospitalized from this.”

What else should you know about these disturbing trends?

Your morning market update

U.S. stock futures slipped Monday after Friday’s rally on Covid reopening optimism lifted the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 to record closings. 

Meanwhile, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell reaffirmed the central bank’s commitment to keep easy monetary policy in place, despite what he sees as a rapidly recovering economy from the depths of the pandemic.

“I think it’s highly unlikely that we would raise rates anything like this year,” Powell told “60 Minutes” in an interview that aired Sunday.

Biden is set to meet today with lawmakers to further discuss his #2 trillion infrastructure plan.

St. Vincent is dark and covered in Ash thanks to a volcano eruption

The Caribbean island of St. Vincent continues to deal with the aftermath of a major volcanic eruption. 

Most of the island is literally in the dark as it has been blanketed by ash that blocks the sun. The catastrophic eruption and lingering ash has also cut power to most of the island. Residents describe the island as a “battle zone” as ash begins to harden on surfaces and encase much of the island. Most of the island’s residents are also left without electricity and water. 

Officials warn that additional danger lies ahead for the island as pyroclastic flows are now the main concern. Pyroclastic flows are a mix of volcanic gas, lava blocks, ash, and pumice that move quickly and can cause damage unexpectedly in areas near the volcano. Pyroclastic flows are known for destroying everything that ends up in their path. 

What other volcanic effects does the island have to worry about? And what does the island currently look like? Check out all of the information and photos right here.

Help your child break out of their pandemic bubble

The pandemic led to abrupt and extended changes to families’ routines, including more isolation and removal from in-person schooling, associated with worsening mental health in young people. Since March 2020, there’s been a significant increase in reported youth anxiety, particularly in relation to fears of the coronavirus, along with greater frustration, boredom, insomnia, and inattention.

Parents are also struggling emotionally. Adults report increased symptoms of depression, especially those experiencing high levels of anxiety related to the risk of coronavirus exposure or infection. Parents must juggle the demands of work, home management, virtual schooling, and child behavior during this time of prolonged isolation. The majority of people can adapt to new and stressful situations, but some experience severe and extended psychological distress.

So, what can parents do to care for both themselves and their children as we gradually transition back to interacting in public?
