President Biden announced a series of proposals yesterday to combat rising COVID-19 infections. Chief among them is that all private employers with 100 or more employees must mandate vaccination of their workforce. Workers who remain unvaccinated are required to submit to regular COVID-19 testing (at least on a weekly basis). The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is responsible for drafting and implementing these requirements via an Emergency Temporary Standard (“ETS”) which is estimated to impact over 80 million workers and will be issued in the coming weeks.
