The White House Pandemic Strategy
These include: (1) a new COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal contractors, which explicitly does not apply to federal grantees; (2) a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all Head Start employees; and (3) a planned Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rule requiring all employers with 100 or more employees to impose COVID-19 vaccine and testing mandates. Together, the new mandates are expected to cover about 100 million workers, or approximately two-thirds of the nation’s workforce.
Community Action Note: Most CAAs and Community Action Network organizations are federal grantees rather than federal contractors, and these executive orders explicitly do not apply to federal grants. Consequently, CAAs and other Community Action Network organizations are generally not obligated by these executive orders to require employee vaccination.
