Covid Breakthrough: Biden Administration Withdraws Vaccine And Testing Mandate For Businesses
SHARE

Not too long ago, we were revealing that the Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration’s emergency rule that would have forced large employers to vaccinate or regularly test their employees.

Supreme Court blocks Biden’s covid mandate 

This decision was delivered recently, and this is a major victory for the mandate’s critics who appealed to the Supreme Court to block the order after the Sixth Circuit lifted a stay put in place by the Fifth Circuit.

“OSHA’s COVID–19 Vaccination and Testing; Emergency Temporary Standard, 86 Fed. Reg. 61402, is stayed pending disposition of the applicants’ petitions for review in the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and disposition of the applicants’ petitions for writs of certiorari, if such writs are timely sought.”

The Court concluded:

“Should the petitions for writs of certiorari be denied, this order shall terminate automatically. In the event the petitions for writs of certiorari are granted, the order shall terminate upon the sending down of the judgment of this Court.”

Biden administration withdraws mask and testing mandate 

It’s been just revealed that the Biden administration is formally withdrawing its vaccine and testing mandate for businesses after the Supreme Court blocked the requirements earlier this month.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will pull the rule for businesses effective today, Wednesday, Jan. 26, the agency said in a statement posted to its website Tuesday.

The Supreme Court’s conservative majority, in a 6-3 decision, ruled that OSHA had exceeded its authority, according to the latest data coming from CNBC. 

“Although Congress has indisputably given OSHA the power to regulate occupational dangers, it has not given that agency the power to regulate public health more broadly.”

This is what the court wrote in an unsigned opinion.
