The US Court of Appeals on Friday reinstated the administration requirement for mandatory vaccination or COVID-19 testing for workers at large enterprises, AP reported.
The US 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, Ohio, overturned a November injunction blocking an OSHA ruling that applied to businesses with 100 employees or more.
“Vaccination and medical examinations are both tools that OSHA historically employed to contain illness in the workplace,” Judge Julia Smith Gibbons said.
At least three petitions were reportedly filed with the Supreme Court, requesting the immediate suspension of the mandate within several hours of the ruling of the Court of Appeal
“While we are disappointed in the Court’s decision, we will continue to fight the illegal mandate in the Supreme Court. We are confident the mandate can be stopped,” the South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson tweeted.
