Biden orders federal workers, contractors to get vaccinated or submit to testing | 29 July 2021 | Joe Biden on Thursday is directing all federal employees and onsite contractors to show that they are vaccinated or otherwise submit to regular coronavirus testing, a major step that will likely cause other private sector businesses to follow suit. Biden is also instructing his administration to apply similar standards to all federal government contractors. The White House is also encouraging private sector employers to follow his lead. "If you want to do business with the fed government, get your workers vaccinated," Biden said in remarks from the White House Thursday afternoon... According to the White House, the federal government will ask employees and onsite contractors to attest to their vaccination status. Those who do not show that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will need to mask, socially distance and submit to weekly or twice weekly coronavirus testing. Biden also said that workers who are not vaccinated "generally will not be allowed to travel for work."

228 Republican lawmakers urge Supreme Court to overrule Roe v. Wade

228 Republican lawmakers urge Supreme Court to overrule Roe v. Wade | 29 July 2021 | Scores of congressional Republicans on Thursday urged the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade next term when the justices review a restrictive Mississippi abortion law.

"Congress and the States have shown that they are ready and able to address the issue in ways that reflect Americans' varying viewpoints and are grounded in the science of fetal development and maternal health," wrote the lawmakers, who represent 40 states.

Capitol Police to arrest House staff who break Pelosi's mask mandate

Capitol Police to arrest House staff who break Pelosi's mask mandate | 29 July 2021 | US Capitol Police officers will arrest visitors and staff members who refuse to comply with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's renewed COVID-19 mask mandate -- heightening tensions with Republicans who call the mandate an unscientific power trip. Police won't arrest lawmakers or people on the Senate side of the Capitol, where masks are voluntary. A bulletin for police says, "If a visitor or staff member fails to wear a mask after a request is made to do so, the visitor or staff shall be denied entry to the House Office Buildings or House-side of the U.S. Capitol. Any person who fails to either comply or leave the premises after being asked to do so would be subject to an arrest for Unlawful Entry." Members of Congress and aides accompanying them who break the new rule won't be arrested, but will be reported to House leaders, who will dock their pay with $500 fines. The Constitution says members of Congress are "privileged from Arrest" in most cases at the Capitol.

Vaccinated individuals who become infected with Covid have just as much viral load as the unvaccinated - CDC director

Vaccinated individuals who become infected with Covid have just as much viral load as the unvaccinated - CDC director | 28 July 2021 | The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new guidance on Tuesday recommending indoor mask use in areas with high transmission rates after new data suggested fully vaccinated individuals are not just contracting Covid-19 but could potentially infect others. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said recent studies had shown that those vaccinated individuals who do become infected with Covid have just as much viral load as the unvaccinated, making it possible for them to spread the virus to others. Based on that finding, Walensky said the CDC is also recommending that all school children wear masks in the fall. "We're seeing now that it's actually possible if you're a rare [sic] breakthrough infection that you can transmit further, which is the reason for the change," Walensky said.

Speaker directs Capitol Police to arrest staff, visitors and report lawmakers who refuse to wear masks | 29 July 2021 | U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) were ordered to arrest visitors and staff who refuse to wear a mask on the House side of the Capitol complex, according to a police memo issued by new USCP Chief Thomas Manger that was obtained by a member of Congress. Police were also advised not to arrest members of Congress for failing to wear masks but to report the lawmakers' noncompliance to the House sergeant-at-arms, the memo says. House members have been subjected to fines starting at $500 for skirting mask rules. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., got a copy of the memo distributed at Thursday's morning roll call from an unnamed police officer, she told Fox News. Police she's spoken to are "very uncomfortable" with this new directive that Cammack describes as "tyrannical."

CDC director says European-style health passes 'may very well be a path forward' in US | 28 July 2021 | European-style health passes for admission to public venues "may very well be a path forward" in the United States, said Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky. France passed a law Monday requiring health passes to enter restaurants, bars, and other public venues. To receive a health pass, people must prove that they are fully vaccinated, recently tested negative for the virus, or recently recovered from the virus. "They're issuing health passes there [in Europe]...if you have a health pass," a host told Walensky during a Wednesday morning interview. "Is that something that the CDC would ever lean in to, or perhaps advise here?" "You know, I think some communities are doing that, and that may very well be a path forward," Walensky responded.

"I just left speaking with Dr. Monahan from the House. He said he used the CDC recommendation on a report that hasn't been printed yet," McCarthy said on the House floor, referring to Dr. Brian P. Monahan, the attending physician of Congress. "He did not know that the report is based upon India, about a vaccine that's not approved in America, and now he did not know that it didn't even pass peer-review," the GOP leader said, referring to a CDC study published July 27.

California city wants vaccinated employees to put stickers on their IDs

California city wants vaccinated employees to put stickers on their IDs | 26 July 2021 | (Montclair, CA) A policy asking Montclair city employees to show proof of COVID-19 vaccinations to be displayed as a sticker on their ID badges has prompted objections from one City Council member and is raising eyebrows among some city staffers. City employees have been sent a memo with a compliance form from the Human Resources Department asking that workers provide proof of vaccinations. Those who do so will be given a sticker saying they've been vaccinated and would be exempt from wearing face masks. Employees who have not been vaccinated, or do not provide proof or verification of their vaccination, will be required to wear face masks, according to City Manager Edward Starr. The California Department of Public Health is recommending stickers placed on employee ID badges "to demonstrate they have been fully vaccinated," Starr said. If the city does not comply with both federal and state regulations, fines as much as $10,000 a day could be issued or the city could be placed under investigation, Starr explained.
