The President is on his way to Pennsylvania today to “talk about the importance of his ‘Buy American’ policy to support and grow more American companies and put more American workers in good paying union jobs, strengthen American manufacturing and secure critical supply chains while confronting the climate crisis.”
New Federal Employee Vaccine Requirement
The Biden administration is looking into enforcing and requiring vaccines for all federal employees in the coming weeks as the Delta variant increases. Jean-Pierre did not give a clear definition of what a ‘federal employee’ entails, but it is likely to be all government workers and assistants, along with other adjacent positions.
She stated, “our goal as a federal employer is to keep our employees safe and also to save lives. While no decision has been finalized, I will say that the attestation of vaccination for federal employees is one option under strong consideration.”
New CDC Mask Guideline
It will be difficult for the administration to enforce this guideline after many Americans have abandoned their masks and walk freely without any protection.
“I think I want to take this opportunity with the CDC mask guidance that was given, again not a mandate as you know, but a guidance. Yesterday, the CDC did exactly what it was supposed to do and I’m sure you all saw, tracking what the public health experts have said.” Jean-Pierre said. “The message is simple. If you are in an area where Delta is surging, you should mask up indoors.”
On why people would trust the CDC and the government and abide by the new guidance, she stated, “The CDC is a body that is highly respected, a body that people look towards.”
“The virus is a North Star, we have to listen to public health experts. And right now, again, we are trying to make sure that we’re saving lives, but again, we need to make sure that people who are not vaccinated get vaccinated.”
