Employer Covid-19 Vaccine and Testing Guidelines Unveiled

WASHINGTON—Many employers should guarantee by Jan. four that their staff are vaccinated or examined weekly for Covid-19 beneath a set of recent vaccine necessities by the Biden administration that can cowl greater than 80 million staff.

The necessities launched Thursday by the Labor Division implement a vaccine directive that President Biden introduced in September. They apply to employers with 100 or extra staff. Whereas the administration has mentioned the necessities are essential to curb the Covid-19 pandemic, they’ve drawn opposition from many Republicans.
