President Biden is implementing a six-pronged, comprehensive national strategy that employs the same science-based approach that was used to successfully combat previous variants of COVID-19 earlier this year. This plan will ensure that we are using every available tool to combat COVID-19 and save even more lives in the months ahead, while also keeping schools open and safe, and protecting our economy from lockdowns and damage.

The Executive Orders include the following:

  • Department of Labor Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) requiring employers with more than 100 people to require vaccination or weekly testing
  • Department of Labor rule requiring employers with more than 100 people to provide paid time off for vaccinations
  • Require federal employees to get vaccinated within 75 days or risk termination (which would remove the option for weekly testing in lieu of vaccination)
  • Extend the federal employee vaccination requirement to federal contractors
  • Require Medicare and Medicaid funding recipients to fully vaccinate their staff
  • Urge schools to set up regular testing based on community spread
  • Expand free COVID testing
