As President Biden Orders Vaccinations for all Federal Government Employees, 30 Jurisdictions Have some Form of Mask Mandate in Place, while 11 Jurisdictions Have Prohibited State or Local Mandates

NEW YORK, Sept. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --


What: Back to Office (BTO) Trends

Why: On September 9, the White House announced plans for the President to sign a new executive order that would require all federal government employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19. It has been reported that President Biden hopes similar policy will be adopted by state governments and private companies. Following this news, while over 150,000 new COVID-19 cases are being reported per day in the United States, Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. has assembled the latest state law requirements related to mask mandates, vaccine passports and employer liability.

Who: Cathleen Calhoun, Legal Analyst; Pamela Wolf, Sr. Legal Analyst

Cathleen Calhoun, J.D., is a health law legal analyst at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. with areas of expertise in health care compliance, Medicare benefits and coverage, health care reimbursement and more. Cathleen can give insight on the importance of keeping track of state law requirements and ways to keep employees safe, healthy and comfortable when returning back to office.

Pamela Wolf, J.D., is a senior employment legal analyst at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. who tracks and analyzes employment issues including White House and federal agency developments, federal regulations, court decisions, state and federal legislation, and labor and employment trends. Pamela can discuss the important steps and questions employers should consider when it comes to developing back to office COVID-19 policies and protocols for their employees.

"The rise of the delta variant of the coronavirus has caused an increase in mask mandates and a slowing or pause of back-to-office plans for many employers. From August to September 2021, the number of jurisdictions with some form of mask mandate has risen from 18 to 30, impacting both employers and their employees." ?Cathleen Calhoun, Legal Analyst

"Against the backdrop of state laws shielding employers from COVID-19 liability issues, and the delta variant continuing to raise serious concerns, employers are still intensely focused on managing coronavirus spread in the workplace. This includes questions of whether to impose vaccine mandates and whether to require employees to work in-person, remotely, or a combination of both." ?Pamela Wolf, Senior Legal Analyst
