The Safer Federal Workforce Task Force has announced that OMB has issued new guidance.

In the new guidance, OMB states that agencies should not, at this time, take any steps to implement the federal contractor vaccine mandate:  “Despite the lifting of the nationwide bar to enforcement on October 18, 2022, at this time agencies should NOT: (1) take any steps to require covered contractors and subcontractors to come into compliance with previously issued Task Force guidance; or (2) enforce any contract clauses implementing Executive Order 14042.”  The OMB explained that the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force will be developing new guidance and that agencies should not take action until that new guidance is completed.
