The Biden administration is telling companies with over 100 employees to continue implementing it’s vaccine mandate even after a federal court temporarily blocked the order over the weekend. 

White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said on Monday that the White House believes that businesses “should not wait” to implement OSHA’s vaccine guidelines.

We say: Do not wait to take actions that will keep your workplace safe.  It is important and critical to do, and waiting to get more people vaccinated will lead to more outbreaks and sickness. So this is about keeping people in a workplace safe and so – and what we’re seeing is more businesses and school closures and most lost jobs … keep us stuck in a pandemic that we’re trying to end. Like, we do not want that to happen. We’re trying to get past this pandemic, and we know the way to do that is to get people vaccinated.

Jean-Pierre also said that “the administration clearly has the authority to protect workers” and that the mandate is “designed to save lives and stop the spread of COVID-19.”

The White House’s suggestion to continue enforcing OSHA’s mandatory workplace vaccination regimen is in direct violation of an ruling by the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals to “stay” the mandate. 

“Because the petitions give cause to believe there are grave statutory and constitutional issues with the Mandate, the Mandate is hereby STAYED pending further action by this court,” the court ruled.
