Supreme Court stays vaccine mandate covering 8 crore workers

The Supreme Court has restrained the Biden administration from enforcing a requirement that employees of large businesses be vaccinated against COVID-19 or undergo weekly testing and wear masks at work.

Also, the court is allowing the administration to proceed with a vaccine mandate for most health care workers in the US.

The court order Thursday was a mixed bag for the administration’s efforts to boost vaccination rates among Americans during a spike in coronavirus cases.

The court’s conservative majority concluded that the administration overstepped its authority by seeking to impose the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s vaccine-or-test rule on US businesses with at least 100 employees. More than 80 million people would have been affected.

“OSHA has never imposed such a mandate before. Neither has Congress. In fact, although Congress has enacted significant legislation addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, none of the measures similar to what OSHA has promulgated here has refused to implement it,” the conservatives wrote in an unsigned opinion.
