The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) issued a decision Jan. 13 regarding the highly controversial OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) for COVID-19 vaccination.
SCOTUS granted the application for the stay blocking enforcement and progress of the ETS.
Regarding this nationwide stay of OSHA's ETS for COVID-19 vaccination, SCOTUS holds that challengers to the rule are "likely to succeed on the merits" of their claims because the rule is broad enough to qualify as a "public health" mandate rather than an occupational standard.
They went on to say, "OSHA has never before imposed such a mandate. Nor has Congress."
