Unfortunately, Too Many Companies Won’t Follow Suit

AdventHealth Drops Jab Mandate For Employees “Due To Recent Decisions By The Federal Courts” (lifezette.com)

According to reports, AdventHealth has suspended their jab mandate for workers. In a memo sent out to employees earlier in December, the company’s approximately 83,000 employees will no longer be beholden to the COVID shot.

The memo sent out by AdventHealth seemingly references recent court decisions that put a stop to the Biden administration’s effort to mandate the jab via government overreach, writing “due to recent decisions by the federal courts to block the CMS vaccine mandate, we are suspending all vaccination requirements prescribed by this mandate.”

They’re based in Florida, too, which might have also been a factor in making this decision.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued a statement regarding AdventHealth’s recent decision, affording the company accolades for complying with the state’s laws, saying “We welcome AdventHealth’s decision to comply with state law to protect Floridians’ jobs and to ensure our state’s healthcare system can continue functioning smoothly.”

Sadly, too many companies continue to take the easy route, following the mandate even though it looks less and less likely to win in court.
