governor of texas, Republican Greg Abbott signed an executive order Monday that establishes that no company in his state can ask its employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19, Which is a challenge for US President Joe Biden.
Biden announced a month ago that his government plans to force most employees of private companies to be vaccinated or to present negative test results for Covid-19 on a weekly basis.
Although the measure is still in development and has not taken effect, its announcement sparked the anger of conservative leaders such as Abbott.
In response, this Monday, Abbott signed an executive order prohibiting “any entity” in Texas, including private companies, from forcing its employees to vaccinate.
In addition, he asked the Republican-dominated state’s parliament to pass a law for the same purpose.
Abbott signed another executive order weeks ago that bars schools and local officials from requesting vaccination tests from teachers, students or officials, which has already been challenged in court by the school district of the city of San Antonio. It’s gone.
The Republican governor was vaccinated against COVID-19 in front of television cameras and asked Texans to get vaccinated; But, in recent months, they have fought tirelessly against city or school district regulations that mandate the use of masks or require proof of vaccination.
The rules Biden announced in September are being drafted by the Labor Department and it is not yet known when it will be officially presented.
The rule is expected to affect about 80 million workers, more than two-thirds of the country’s workforce.
Across the United States, 56.4% of the population is fully vaccinated, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The average number of vaccinations is low in Texas, where 51.8% of the population is fully immunized.
However, andAnthony Fauci, the main man in charge of the fight against the coronavirus in the United States, has warned that the coronavirus continues to spread in the country., hence “be careful not to declare victory prematurely.”
Also, within the framework of the celebration of ‘Halloween’ in late October, Fauci has invited minors to come out and enjoy the event, but, during an interview for the series CNN, he said that perhaps this date is “a good time to consider why it is important to get vaccinated.”
In what sense, People of the vaccine age are urged to do so to protect themselves, as well as to act as a barrier against the virus for their children..
As such, since parents are vaccinated, coupled with the fact that the celebration takes place outside, it gives citizens and President Joe Biden’s government some reassurance about a potential huge increase in cases after ‘Halloween’. can give.
