New Jersey Mandates Boosters for Health Care and Prison Workers
Gov. Philip D. Murphy of New Jersey said workers in high-risk congregate settings like hospitals, prisons and nursing homes would be required to be fully vaccinated, including a booster. He said there would no longer be an option to satisfy the mandate through testing.
I am signing an executive order today requiring all workers in health care settings and high-risk congregate living facilities, including our correction — correctional facilities, to be up to date on their vaccinations. That means both primary course and booster with no test out option. It is important — it is important to remember that for those working in health care settings, the test out option is already coming to an end due to the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate, which the U.S. Supreme Court upheld last week. But the science tells us that it’s no longer good enough to just receive your primary series, as being boosted as necessary to protect yourself and those around you. The only exemptions will be granted for disability or other medical reasons, or for deeply held religious beliefs. Anyone found in non-compliance will be subject to their workplaces disciplinary process up to and including termination of employment.
