On Nov. 5, 2021, OSHA issued an emergency temporary standard (ETS) to implement President Biden’s vaccine mandate. Under this rule, companies with 100 or more employees would be required to ensure all employees are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or otherwise submit weekly negative tests to enter the workplace.
