Minnesota business groups are cheering the U-S Supreme Court decision striking down the Biden administration’s vaccination, testing and mask mandate for large employers but leaving it in place for some health care workers.  Minnesota Chamber V-P Vicki Stute says employers across Minnesota know best how to manage their workplaces and keep employees and customers safe.  But does it mean that some businesses might now *loosen* COVID policies, fearing loss of workers in an already-tight labor market?

“I don’t see businesses relaxing the policies that they’ve had in place for the past two years.   Their policies have been working for them.  I think they’ll continue to implement those policies.”

State Health Department officials haven’t commented on the Supreme Court striking down the president’s vaccination mandate.
