COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing ETS UPDATE

12/20/2021 8:05 AM | Alex Clark

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) vaccine-or-testing emergency standard is again in effect.

Late Friday,12/17, night, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals lifted the stay on the rule requiring businesses with at least 100 employees to ensure workers are either vaccinated or tested weekly and wear masks.

Employers now have until Jan. 10 to comply with the standard, according to OSHA. However, the ruling was quickly appealed on an emergency basis to the Supreme Court.

OSHA will not enforce any of the requirements until Jan. 10. Additionally, the agency “will not issue citations for noncompliance with the standard’s testing requirements before Feb. 9, so long as an employer is exercising reasonable, good faith efforts to come into compliance with the standard,” according to an OSHA update.
