Neither rain, nor sleet … nor presidential proclamation.
President Biden on Thursday mandated COVID-19 vaccines for almost all federal workers, but the more than 600,000 letter-carriers and administrative staff of the US Postal Service won’t have to get a shot.
The exemption was first-reported by Washington Post postal reporter Jacob Bogage, who reported that a White House official told him that “we strongly encourage them to comply with these standards” anyhow. Biden on Thursday also announced a new Labor Department policy requiring workers at private companies with 100 or more employees to get vaccinated or submit to weekly testing.

#6, BIDEN'S DESPERATE COVID OVERREACH--President Biden has a dilemma. He was elected on a promise to “shut down the virus,” but eight months into his presidency, COVID-19 is still raging.
