The U.S. Supreme Court has stayed indefinitely the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS). The ETS had mandated that employers with 100 or more employees require that those employees to either (1) be vaccinated against COVID or (2) produce negative COVID tests on a weekly basis.
The Supreme Court’s ruling effectively puts all ETS compliance requirements and deadlines on hold for the foreseeable future.
Notwithstanding the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling, states may have their own health and safety requirements related to vaccinations and testing. Currently Florida law does not require Dealers to do anything in regards vax-or-test; it only prevents you from adopting a mandatory vaccination policy.
