    ...except for healthcare workers in units receiving federal money.

    Does this mean the mask mandates are out too?

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Thursday blocked the Biden administration from enforcing a vaccine-or-testing mandate for large employers, dealing a blow to a key element of the White House’s plan to address the pandemic as cases resulting from the Omicron variant are on the rise.

    But the court allowed a more modest mandate requiring health care workers at facilities receiving federal money to be vaccinated.

    The vote in the employer mandate case was 6 to 3, with liberal justices in dissent. The vote in the health care case was 5 to 4, with Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh joining the liberal justices to form a majority.

    The employer mandate would have required workers to be vaccinated against the coronavirus or to wear masks and be tested weekly, though employers were not required to pay for the testing. There were exceptions for workers with religious objections and those who do not come into close contact with other people at their jobs, like those who work from home or exclusively outdoors.

    No surprise on the HC ruling. You take federal money you play by federal rules.

    Ole Joe says for employers to still have their employees get vaccinated. He is a hard headed ole bastard.

    In my opinion it shouldn't matter if you are in healthcare and take federal money. You should not lose your individual rights no matter what. I don't recall anything in the Bill of Rights or Constitution stating rights are just for those that take no money from the government.

    Your employer can mandate it. Federal government is the employer

    Not at all, they just chipped away another little piece of it. Anyone thinking this is any form of a win has been blinded by all the bullshit. The left is doing somersaults over this because they won a small battle in that war.

    Not necessary. A hospital can be private yet take money from the government and they still force the workers to get it. The government should have no more power over my rights than anyone else.
