Sept. 10, 2021—President Joe Biden has announced that all employers with more than 100 employees must require COVID-19 vaccines or test employees weekly, Fox Business reported.

Biden also said he plans to sign an executive order requiring all government employees be vaccinated against Covid-19, with no option of being regularly tested to opt out.
