On January 21, 2022, a nationwide preliminary injunction was issued against the enforcement of Executive Order 14043, which imposed a COVID-19 vaccination requirement for federal employees in the Executive Branch. The preliminary injunction, like the executive order at issue, does not apply to the Commission and may be supplemented, modified, or vacated, depending on the course of ongoing litigation. However, the Commission has suspended enforcement of the COVID-19 vaccination requirement for current and new employees, set forth in the Commission's COVID-19 Vaccination Protocol, pending the outcome of such litigation. To ensure a safe workplace, the remaining requirements of this protocol remain in effect, including the proof-of-vaccination requirement, requirements for employees who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or who do not provide proof thereof, and requirements for employees testing positive for COVID-19.
