Biden to Mandate Vaccinations or Weekly Tests to Companies With Over 100 Employees

All government employees will also be required to be vaccinated

President Joe Biden is set to announce new vaccination mandates, according to multiple outlets.

He will require all government employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 — with no option to test weekly or otherwise as a means to opt out — and will direct the Department of Labor to mandate that all employers with more than 100 employees require vaccination.

The workers at these companies will, however, be able to test weekly in order to opt out of the vaccination. CNN reported these new measures, citing a “senior administration official.”

The new Labor Department vaccine requirements will affect mid-sized and larger companies throughout Hollywood, media and beyond.

The president is set to announce the new rules at a Thursday evening press conference, according to CNN. Some employers, like the Washington Post, have already mandated vaccination as a requirement for returning to the office.
