There’s a lot to digest in the new rules issued on Thursday, Nov. 4. This includes requirements from the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for employers with 100 or more employees, to ensure each of their workers is fully vaccinated or tests for COVID-19 on at least a weekly basis. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) at the Department of Health and Human Services also announced the details of its requirement that health care workers at facilities participating in Medicare and Medicaid are fully vaccinated.

Here is the Powerpoint Canupp shared, and Doty shared several links to help you:
