Workers face Jan. 4 deadline as Biden rolls out COVID-19 vaccine rules for large businesses

By Maureen Groppe | USA Today

WASHINGTON – Workers at larger businesses will have to get vaccinated against COVID-19 by Jan. 4, 2022, or face regular testing under new federal rules being released Thursday.

Workers who choose the testing option may have to bear the cost. They also will be required to wear a face mask on the job beginning Dec. 5.

The rules fill in the details for the vaccination requirement President Joe Biden announced in September for businesses with 100 or more employees.

The Labor Department is taking feedback over the next month on whether smaller workplaces should be included.

“COVID-19 continues to hold back our workforce and our economy – and it will continue to do so until more Americans are vaccinated,” Labor Secretary Marty Walsh and Jeff Zients, the White House COVID-19 response coordinator, wrote in an opinion piece for USA TODAY.
