Letter: No one need lose their job

Published: 9/26/2021 7:00:15 AM

Recent protests and letters surrounding the issue of the vaccine mandate leave out one critical piece of the proposed OSHA rule. Workers are not mandated to get the vaccine, however, if they do not get vaccinated then they must be tested weekly for the virus. This is directly from The White House web page:

“The Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is developing a rule that will require all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated or require any workers who remain unvaccinated to produce a negative test result on at least a weekly basis before coming to work. OSHA will issue an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) to implement this requirement. This requirement will impact over 80 million workers in private sector businesses with 100+ employees.” No one has to quit or be fired, but each of us has the choice of a vaccine or a test to see if we’ve contracted the virus and could put others that we work with at risk.
