As most of you have probably heard by now, President Biden has signed an executive order (EO) requiring federal employees to get vaccinated.
Here is what POPA knows:
- Agencies are supposed to receive further guidance in 7 days (Section 2 of the EO)
- Federal employees will have about 75 days to be fully vaccinated (Press Secretary Jen Psaki)
- "There will be limited exceptions for legally recognized reasons such as disability or religious objection" (Press Secretary Jen Psaki)
POPA does not have any further information at this time. We do not expect to have more information until the guidance comes out. Then we will meet with management to discuss the implementation.
