On November 5, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, based in New Orleans, stayed the mandatory vaccination rule that was finalized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) last week.  As a result, the January 4 deadline for vaccinating all employees in companies with more than 100 employees, and the alternative of weekly testing beginning in December, has been paused. Several state Attorneys General and individual companies challenged the OSHA rule even before it was released by the agency.  It is not clear how long this stay will be in effect and whether other Courts of Appeals may also address this matter.  See Reuters
