A couple of months ago, President Biden announced some updates to his Path out of the Pandemic Plan, and that included tasking OSHA with the creation of an emergency temporary standard requiring employers of 100 or more employees to either ensure their workers are fully vaccinated or provide a negative COVID-19 test on an at least weekly basis.
