West Palm Beach, FL – Today, Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-21) released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court blocking the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) vaccine-or-test rule for American businesses with over 100 employees.

“Today’s ruling is a step in the wrong direction in the fight against COVID-19, especially when we know that vaccines are the best tool we have to reduce infection and keep people out of hospitals,” said Rep. Frankel. “Vaccine mandates work. They improve vaccination rates and keep employees and customers healthy.”

In November, Rep. Frankel introduced the Let Our Cities And Local businesses Help Employees Achieve Long-Term Health Act (LOCAL HEALTH) Act, to protect the ability of local governments, agencies, and private businesses to implement common sense public health and safety measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19. This includes requirements such as social distancing, masks, vaccination, and testing.
