Even though the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for large private businesses is currently in limbo since a federal appeals court halted the new rule and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) suspended its enforcement of the mandate, there is still an upcoming deadline for companies to submit comments on the Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS).

The RV Industry Association has been closely monitoring developments with the mandate that impact our members and the RV industry. Members of the Association have access to a resource center with information and guidance to help members navigate relevant federal requirements and guidelines.

On September 9th, President Biden announced a series of proposals to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. The proposal includes plans for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to issue an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) requiring businesses with at least 100 employees to mandate that their employees get vaccinated against the coronavirus or submit to weekly testing. On November 4, 2021, OSHA unveiled its long-awaited ETS. On November 12, a federal court upheld its stay on the mandate and on November 17, OSHA suspended its enforcement of the mandate.
