Supreme Court Blocks Vaccine Mandate

Capital 4

In a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has rejected the Biden Administration from enforcing a vaccine mandate for large employers.

 

The mandate would have required workers to be vaccinated against the coronavirus or to wear masks and be tested weekly. Employers were not required to pay for the testing. There were exceptions for workers with religious objections and those who do not come into close contact with other people at their jobs, like those who work from home or exclusively outdoors.

 

The Court however did allow, in a 5-4 ruling, a mandate requiring health care workers at facilities that receive federal funding to be vaccinated.
