The Supreme Court said on Wednesday it would face challenges in the Covid-19 vaccination policy of Biden officials and masks in early January, agreeing to hear cases as soon as possible.

The court said it would hear oral arguments on January 7 about policy challenges and mask requirements for top employers and health workers.

Until then, the court said, lower court decisions would remain in force allowing for the enforcement of employer authority issued by OSHA, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, as well as enforcing part of the health worker requirement.

Issued Nov. 5, OSHA law requires businesses with 100 or more employees to ensure that their employees are fully vaccinated. Unvaccinated employees should be required to wear a mask and show Covid test results stating that you do not have Covid at least once a week.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Supreme Court of Appeal called the OSHA law “an important step in reducing the spread of the deadly virus that killed more than 800,000 people in the United States, overturning our health system. , and cost hundreds of thousands of workers their jobs.

OSHA has said it will not take any enforcement action before Jan. 10 and will not issue quotes for failure to comply with testing requirements before Feb. 9 as long as the employer acts faithfully to enforce the rules.Jan. 10 and will not issue quotes for failure to comply with testing requirements before Feb. 9 as long as the employer acts faithfully to enforce the rules.

Business groups and regions opposed to the requirement have asked the Supreme Court to reverse the stay. Wednesday's order said the decision on the application would be withheld until the January 7 dispute.

A separate state law requiring vaccination of health care workers treating Medicare and Medicaid patients is now in effect in part of the country. Two appellate courts have banned its use in 24 provinces, but it still operates in 26 others. The Supreme Court left that situation, again, until the January controversy.

Biden's third demand for vaccination, for state contractors, is still being held across the country, blocked by an order from a state judge in Georgia.
