Regarding the ruling, the Department of Education released the following statement:

“We’re confident our vaccine mandate will continue to be upheld once all the facts have been presented, because that is the level of protection our students and staff deserve. Our current vax-or-test mandate remains in effect and we’re seeking speedy resolution by the Circuit Court next week. Over 82 percent of DOE employees have been vaccinated and we continue to urge all employees to get their shot by September 27.”

It’s been also revealed that according to data from the Department of Education, 82% of some 150,000 DOE employees, including 88% of teachers and 95% of principals are vaccinated, says the same website.
