The Supreme Court of the US has rescinded President Joe Biden’s mandate that expects workers of prominent companies to be tested of covid-19; weekly and be vaccinated.
According to how the justices of the Supreme Court saw it, such law was beyond the authority of the president’s office.
They however ruled that a laxer form of the mandate for vaccination could be used for staff working in health centres funded by the government.
BBC News reported that President Joe Biden showed displeasure at the decision made by the Supreme Court and pleaded with companies to instead take it upon themselves to ensure that their staff and community are safe within their reception of the vaccine.
The US court weighed Biden’s decision as serving more as an impediment to the economic livelihood of the average American citizen, and not only that, the entire state at large.
Ex-president Donald Trump showed support for the court’s decision, opining that he estimated that such a rigid vaccine mandate would have brought ruins to the country’s economy.
The vaccine mandate, if implemented, would have seen to it that workers received the vaccines and were exposed to constant testing every week.
Workspaces holding more than a hundred workers would have to follow the mandate and about 84 million workers would have been affected.
The mandate was ruled out because the court has had to interpret the statute of the federation that saw to protect its citizens.
The justices agreed that the rule guiding workplace safety was too vast for it to fall under the inspection and authority of the Department of Labor’s Occupational Health and Safety Administration.
According to political analysts, although the Biden administration might have meant well for US citizens by stipulating the mandate, so much more needed to be considered.
