All adults who need to get vaccinated can obtain the vaccine. Unvaccinated co-workers aren’t a menace to vaccinated adults, although CNN tells its viewers they’re. However, a rule is a rule till it’s modified. I disagreed with the rule that Sha’Carri Richardson couldn’t smoke weed forward of the Olympics. Yet it’s the rule, and Richardson broke it. If you need to problem authority — which I usually encourage — you don’t do it by breaking the rule and getting fired or suspended.
As for the authorized side, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission up to date its pointers in May to state that U.S. employers might require employees who bodily enter a office to be vaccinated towards COVID-19. This assertion seems to guard CNN’s choice.
Unless that line modifications, CNN can proceed to fireside the unvaccinated and preserve Zoom masturbators.
