As you may already know, the US federal government recently announced a new COVID vaccine mandate that will affect many workers. More recently, news has appeared that enforcement of the new mandate for federal workers will begin on November 9, 2021.
In case you’re not up-to-date, here’s who will be affected by the mandate:
The new federal policy also calls on state officials to require teachers and school staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID, calls on entertainment venues to require either a proof of negative test or a proof of vaccination for admission, and increases fines for people who violate mask requirements on planes, trains, and buses.
So some workplaces are going to have quite a bit of work to do to implement these new federal COVID-related requirements, keeping on top of who’s been vaccinated, who’s been tested this week, and so on.
