"The expansive rules mandate that all employers with more than 100 workers require them to be vaccinated or test for the virus weekly, affecting about 80 million Americans. And the roughly 17 million workers at health facilities that receive federal Medicare or Medicaid also will have to be fully vaccinated.

Biden is also signing an executive order to require vaccination for employees of the executive branch and contractors who do business with the federal government — with no option to test out. That covers several million more workers."

  • The first part of this is creating a policy that federal workers must get vaccinated or be terminated. Since he is the head of the executive branch, he has the authority to set guidelines like that.
  • The second part is instructing any contractor that does business with the federal government or healthcare agency that receives Medicare/Medicaid dollars to make the same policy within their own companies. If those companies want to continue to do business with the federal government, they will need to comply with this policy.
  • The third part is instructing OSHA to implement a policy that requires any employer that has more than 100 employees to require vaccinations or testing. The penalty for not doing so is a fine. This policy may or may not be constitutional, depending on whether this type of regulation is within the scope of what Congress has given to the agency.

"Now, despite more than 208 million Americans having at least one dose of the vaccines, the U.S. is seeing about 300% more new COVID-19 infections a day, about two-and-a-half times more hospitalizations, and nearly twice the number of deaths compared to the same time last year."

Unless I'm missing something, it seems like there are different dates for different aspects of the COVID-19 Action Plan. Here's what I've found on the whitehouse.gov site so far:

  • OSHA is going to issue an Emergency Temporary Standard impacting companies with 100 employees or more, but hasn't said when as far as I can tell.
  • The President has already signed the executive order impacting federal workers and contractors.
  • The plan says Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is "taking action". Not sure on the date.

It makes sense the anything that can be issued as an Executive Order is already in motion, but there are a lot of departments at different levels of government that must be scrambling right not to figure out all the details here.
