GLI Statement on Federal Vaccine and Testing Requirement

GLI president and CEO, Sarah Davasher-Wisdom, issued the following statement regarding new guidance on the federal COVID-19 vaccine and testing mandate:

“GLI recognizes that widespread vaccination of our entire community is critical to the health of our workforce and the continued growth of our economy. Since the federal vaccine and testing mandate was announced, we have been in constant communication with impacted businesses in our region. While many support the impending federal requirements, there remain concerns over its potential implications on already dire talent shortages. We appreciate OSHA’s strategic guidance to not place the burden of paying for testing on employers and we continue to advocate that these requirements are as least burdensome as possible on businesses.”
