The US has posted another record-breaking single-day death toll from COVID-19.

More than 4,300 people died from the virus over the previous day, as the push continues to vaccinate Americans.

Many large companies aren't going to mandate a shot.

But Dollar General, which employs 157,000 people, is going to provide employees who get vaccinated with four hours of pay.

Most of its workers are in small towns or rural areas, and the company's CEO says it's important to bring the vaccine to rural America.
