President Joe Biden announced Thursday federal workers will need to “attest” to being vaccinated or wear masks, regardless of COVID-19 community spread where they live.

The unvaccinated employees will also need to comply with weekly or twice weekly testing, and could face travel restrictions. The mandate applies to all federal contractors as well.

It does not apply to the military, though Biden says he’s working with the Department of Defense to add COVID-19 to the required vaccines list.
