Meanwhile, Judge Strikes Down D.C. Mayor’s Vax Mandate

Mayor Bowser Had Unlawfully Forced City Workers To Take The Jab

  • D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser this year required city government workers to be vaccinated and boosted to keep their jobs.
  • The police union opposed the policy, which offered no testing or opt-out provision.
  • The judge noted that a vaccination requirement is “strikingly unlike any other workplace regulations typically imposed, as it ‘cannot be undone at the end of the workday.”
  • The court ruled the Bowser’s mandate cannot be enforced and disciplinary actions taken against city workers must be reversed.
