Biden will announce vaccination requirement across federal government on Thursday

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by JudyM (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

President Joe Biden will announce on Thursday a requirement that all federal employees and contractors be vaccinated against Covid-19, or be required to submit to regular testing and mitigation requirements, according to a source with direct knowledge of the matter.

The announcement will come in remarks where Biden is also expected to lay out a series of new steps, including incentives, in an attempt to spur new vaccinations as the Delta variant spreads rapidly throughout the country. It will also follow the decision by the Department of Veterans Affairs to require its frontline health care workers to be vaccinated over the course of the next two months.

1. How about the military? Seems a no-brainer NOW.

3. Good news!




That is likely to include a lot of employees who are not vaxed or regularly testing.

or if conservatives will quit or strike or something.

7. Oh please, PLEASE

Let conservatives strike. Would love to see some of the ones I work with in federal prison. Quitting works too. Helps my seniority go up.

10. Locking

Per consensus of the forum hosts, the requisite “important news of national interest” is the news event, itself, rather than an announcement of news that has not yet happened, with very rare exception.

Please post anticipatory and schedule-type news in General Discussion instead so that we can have a single discussion thread in LBN once the news happens. Thanks.
