From what I hear, it'll take months (at a minimum) for the fed govt to finalize this requirement. It will take some time for them to actually write the details (which they haven't yet), and then there is expected to be legal challenges, etc. So for now, I wouldn't take any action but definitely worth learning how others plan to do it so you know too when it comes time

We are preparing and looking at all our options around testing and tracking.

This is an interesting policy gesture, but in practice, I can’t imagine how it will realistically work on a broad scale. I think it’s going to cause a lot of chaos, and finally, many companies will throw up their hands and tell the government it’s just not viable.

It's already been proven not viable.

I'd like to posit that vaccine mandates are already in place for most employees. The only difference is that instead of asking for proof of vaccination (against things like smallpox, measles, etc.), they ask for your degree. Employers don't have to ask for proof of those vaccinations because it is understood that you've already fulfilled those requirements through higher education. So when people say this vaccine mandate is "unprecedented" and "unenforceable", I would like you to pause for a moment and ask why this is any different from any of the other times you were mandated to participate in a system that is simply trying to save your life.

I don’t need “a system” run by my employer to save my life. Today marks month 7 of post-infection for me. Doing just fine and don’t need Big Daddy Employer to “keep me safe.” I do that by working remotely and staying metabolically healthy.

And what if an employee already had Covid so they don't need the vaccine?

OW1: Biden’s EO has zero effect on private employers. For us, it only impacts our Fed Svcs division.

We will be continuing what we are doing now and recommending it and if they do not want to get it they have to test … also having covid does not mean you can’t get it again and you still should be vaccinated. I have an employee that has has it 3 times so far…

We are requesting that all employees on vaccinated by the 17th. Or at least have one shot by the 17th monitoring the employees after the fact is also something that we’ve kept in mind ive collected all vaccination cards.

like

We are also taking copies of cards and tracking them in a spreadsheet

Since we have a couple sites in California we already mandated weekly testing back using a 3rd party vendor (Color) in December. Starting in June those who were vaccinated can opt out. Weekly testing has actually been very helpful once they got used to the process

Why do you feel like this year is so much harder than previous years? This year was supposed to be easier than last year and it’s not 😭 The only reason I can think of is we didn’t have enough time to rest after last year. The only solution I can come up with is giving teachers more time to get things done. What do you think the solutions are to fix this or what has your school already done? My school/district/admin is amazing and they’re wracking their brains to figure it out.
