US Mandates Vaccines or Tests for Large Companies by Jan. 4


What Happened:

  • On Thursday, the Biden administration released new rules requiring that companies with 100 or more employees either be fully vaccinated or provide weekly Covid-19 testing of unvaccinated employees. Unvaccinated employees will also have to use a mask at the workplace.

  • The new requirements are the strictest the Biden administration has implemented thus far and are estimated to apply to roughly 84 million Americans. They are also the first regulations to carry a financial penalty of nearly $14,000 for companies that refuse to comply.

  • Workers will still be able to ask for exemptions based on medical or religious grounds and the new rules will not apply to people who work at home or outdoors.

  • Said President Biden, in a statement, "While I would have much preferred that requirements not become necessary, too many people remain unvaccinated for us to get out of this pandemic for good."
