Good evening,

Last week the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a motion to stay OSHA’s COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS).  We now understand that the ETS may be changed, or may not be implemented at all.

We are standing by and intend to take no further action to enforce the ETS until the legal status and our compliance requirements are clear.  As I stated in the previous email, our top priorities continue to be the health and safety of our community, and minimal disruption to those served by the college while also complying with legal requirements.

For your safety and that of others, please continue to follow the protocols set out here. Thank you very much, and I wish you a happy Thanksgiving holiday.
