California officials announced live sports and film production can resume in the state on June 12 after the coronavirus forced them into a three-month hiatus, Bloomberg reports.

Why it matters: The shutdown of sports and film production in the state left thousands of workers in the industry out of jobs. Nearly 900,000 entertainment workers have been unemployed since March, per Bloomberg.

The state of play: Sports teams will be able to resume games and training, but will not have live audiences. Companies must follow safety guidelines that include social distancing, wearing masks and regularly sanitizing surfaces, Bloomberg notes.

Pfizer preparing to distribute COVID vaccine by year-end, CEO says

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla told CBS News' "Face the Nation" Sunday that his company will know whether its coronavirus vaccine is effective by the end of October and that it has already manufactured hundreds of thousands of doses in anticipation that the vaccine will receive FDA approval.

Why it matters: There has been a major push by the Trump administration to get a coronavirus vaccine to the public this fall, though it may only be available for certain high-risk groups. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has already urged governors to have vaccine distribution centers ready by November.
