    Weekend Roundup 1/14

    On the "CBS News Weekend Roundup" with host Allison Keyes -- President Biden expands his administration's response to COVID-19 amid a surge driven by the Omicron variant. This as the Supreme Court blocks the president's vaccination rules for large companies. CBS's Steve Dorsey explains. As many schools struggle with an increasing number of cases, some in Minnesota and Oklahoma have gone virtual again, temporarily. Allison asks Dr. Ruth Kanthula, a pediatric infectious disease specialist at MedStar Health, if worried parents and teachers are overreacting. President Biden's push to get the Senate to change the rules to make it easier for Democrats to pass major voting rights legislation fails, as two moderates refuse to support the plan. Now, Democratic leaders will not fulfill their promised vote on the issue by Monday's federal holiday marking the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. CBS's Nancy Cordes joins Allison with details. In the Kaleidoscope, Allison speaks with Rev. Traci Blackmon at the United Church of Christ about those efforts to pass voting rights legislation, and why this issue is so important to people of color. All this and much more on the "CBS News Weekend Roundup."
