After the Supreme Court ruled Biden's use of Biden's employer vaccination rule, Oregon will not adopt its own employer vaccination measure

After a while, Oregon is calling off its efforts to adopt a vaccination-or-test rule for high-income individuals.

Businesses in the United States with at least 100 employees would have to verify their workers are vaccinated or that they test positive for COVID-19 at least weekly.

Oregon is one of 21 states with its own workplace safety agency rather than relying on federal regulations and enforcement, toward implementing its own rule. its required by federal law to adopt rules that are at least as effective as the federal ones, but do not require an identical measure, and may be more restrictive.

The conservative majority of the Supreme Court has found that the administration had overreached in its business mandate. It did not provide a vaccine requirement for health providers who receive federal Medicare or Medicaid funding.

In a statement on its website, Oregon OSHA said it would stop working on its rule.

According to the Supreme Court, Oregon OSHA will continue to monitor federal OSHA activities and respond as needed.

As well as other measures intended to protect workers during the epidemic, the state's mask requirement remains intact.
