The Brief for Friday, October 8, 2021

A firey plane crash claims the lives of all four aboard the Cessna 210, shutting down the airport for most of the afternoon; Getting a COVID vaccine puts pregnant people at a slightly higher risk of complications, but the CDC is urging them to get innoculated anyway; and the pandemic last year forced the cancellation of the state fair. Not this time, though. So, to all the Georgia State Fair fans who’ve so patiently waited these past two years, we say, “Enjoy.” This weekend is for you.
