Supreme Court Blocks Vaccine-or-Testing Mandate for Large Employers

On Thursday, January 13, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked efforts by the Biden Administration to put a vaccine-or-testing mandate in place for large employers in a 6-3 vote. The mandate would have required proof of vaccination or weekly COVID testing for businesses that employ at least 100 individuals.

While a vaccine-or-testing mandate will not go into effect for general employers, employees of healthcare facilities that receive money through the Medicare and Medicaid programs must be vaccinated against COVID-19 by the end of February 2022, as decided in a 5-4 ruling.
