This is an interesting bit of news. Just after giving a speech announcing that all federal workers would be mandated to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, a White House official told the Washington Post’s Jacob Bogage that United States Postal Service employees would not be included in the mandate. That’s nearly 650,000 people.

Update:

So it sounds like whether USPS workers fall under the mandate is a bit unclear at this point.

“We strongly encourage them to comply with these standards” — pretty tough talk, there.
