Amtrak Suspends Vaccine Mandate Days After Shutting Down Routes Over Staff Shortages

• by Tyler Durden

In a Tuesday statement, Amtrak - like many other businesses lately - pointed to a recent federal court decision halting the enforcement of President Biden's Executive Order for federal contractors. The decision "caused the company to reevaluate our policy and to address the uncertainty" surrounding federal requirements.

"Amtrak is announcing today that we will revert to our original vaccine mandate policy," which allows employees to submit negative Covid-19 tests as an alternative to vaccination.
