After SC decision, Oregon will NOT enforce Vax-or-Test mandate


Oregon’s OSHA has officially announced that there will be no enforcement or prosecution of a mandatory vaccination mandate following the Supreme Court’s action last week.

OSHA MONITORING OREGON’S L&I OPERATIONS

Like Washington and 15 other states, the Oregon Department of Labor and Industries is “supervised” or managed through an agreement with the federal government. OSHA (Operational Safety and Health Administration) basically manages their LI.

Therefore, when Oregon OSHA says there will be no vax warrant, that means it’s pretty much dead.

The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 to block the Biden administration’s requirement that all private companies with more than 100 workers require vax proof or mandatory testing.

OSHA SAYS NO WEEKLY TESTING REQUIRED EITHER

“Oregon OSHA confirmed Friday that it will not be moving forward with adopting the same or a similar standard in the state.”

This announcement also means there will be no mandatory weekly testing for unvaccinated workers. This is considered an important announcement because unlike Oregon, WA has yet to issue an official statement.

INSLEE IS VAWY ABOUT IF THE STATE WILL PURSUE ITS OWN VAX MANDATE

Asked about the Supreme Court’s decision, Governor Inslee said last week that there were no immediate plans to pursue a state-imposed vax requirement, but he did. not say that the case was closed either. No WA state agency has made such an announcement.

According to KATU-TV in Oregon on Friday, January 14, here is what Oregon OSHA reported:

“Oregon OSHA confirmed Friday that it will not be moving forward with adopting the same or a similar standard in the state.”

Many in our state are waiting for a similar statement from Washington officials, but it hasn’t arrived yet.
