Vaccination Policy on Council’s Agenda

The United States Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments Friday, January 7 regarding the legal challenge to the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate for businesses with at least 100 employees. The OSHA rule requires that businesses must ensure that their employees are vaccinated against the coronavirus or undergo weekly COVID-19 testing and wear a face covering. City of Sheridan Mayor Rich Bridger says the City Council, at their upcoming meeting, will be considering a vaccination, testing and face covering policy.

Bridger said the policy will not be implemented by the City until the Supreme Court rules on the matter, but that  a policy needs to be in place to comply in case the high court does not block the directive. The OSHA rule, if upheld by the Supreme Court, requires that employers with at least 100 workers have a policy in place by January 10, 2022 and that unvaccinated employees begin weekly testing and wear face coverings beginning on February 9, 2022.
