No COVID case update this week. Like last week, new cases are persistent in the US, California, and San Diego County.
However, just wanted to note that the 5th circuit has placed a second stay on the OSHA vaccine mandate until further notice. OSHA has suspended efforts to enforce the mandate. Text on the OSHA website reads:
“On November 12, 2021, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit granted a motion to stay OSHA’s COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard, published on November 5, 2021 (86 Fed. Reg. 61402) (“ETS”). The court ordered that OSHA “take no steps to implement or enforce” the ETS “until further court order.” While OSHA remains confident in its authority to protect workers in emergencies, OSHA has suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the ETS pending future developments in the litigation.”
Don’t fear, but be smart,
