Biden to Announce Covid Vaccine Mandate for Federal Workers

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden to Announce Covid Vaccine Mandate for Federal Workers” – below is their description.

President Joe Biden said he is weighing a requirement for federal workers to get vaccinated as the highly contagious delta variant spreads throughout the U.S.

A Covid-19 vaccine mandate for federal workers is “under consideration,” Biden told reporters on Tuesday after visiting the Office of the Director of National Intelligence in Virginia.

The president’s comments reflect the heightened concern among U.S. public health officials about the delta variant. He made the remarks after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tightened mask guidance, advising that fully vaccinated individuals cover their faces indoors in places where the virus is rapidly spreading.
