ast month, President Biden issued a bold
new action plan aimed
at attacking COVID-19
and fighting the dangerous

with 100 or more employees to mandate that their workers get vaccinated. Similarly, the president’s plan requires the following groups of employees to be vaccinated: those working on federal government contracts (or subcon- tracts), healthcare workers, and federal government workers.
