Ridgewood NJ, The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit temporarily halted the Biden administration’s rule requiring employers with over 100 workers to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations or implement weekly testing.

The ruling came from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit after Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) filed Texas’s challenge to the mandate requiring employers with over 100 or more employees to get vaccinated or undergo frequent testing directly with the court.

The Biden administration announced that it would issue the law through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in September. Companies who meet the criteria are required to get their employees fully vaccinated by Jan.4, or workers must test negative for the virus once per week.
