This week President Biden announced his COVID-19 Action Plan. The plan focuses on three priority areas:
- Get more people vaccinated.
- Decrease hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19.
- Keep schools and our economy open.
President Biden also announced that the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is developing a rule that will require all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated or require workers to produce a negative test result at least weekly. While this requirement has been widely publicized around its impact on workers in the private sector, it is probable that public sector employees – including K-12 educators – will be included in the 26 states and 2 territories that have OSHA-Approved State Plans. Wyoming is one of the states with an OSHA approved plan. We anticipate more information in the coming days.
