Equities on Wall Street traded mostly higher in the premarket session on Friday, as investors looked at how the latest pandemic news influenced the markets.

Meanwhile, cities across the US have continued implementing local vaccine mandates, with Seattle becoming the latest to require vaccination certificates for entering indoor venues. Lastly, the AUKUS deal is still in the headlines with the US reaffirming its commitment to Australia and the White House rebuffing earlier reports, saying that France knew about the deal in advance.
