CA to make virus testing, vaccination mandatory

All state workers in California will have to either get vaccinated against COVID-19 or test regularly for the disease, the Golden State Governor Gavin Newsom (pictured) announced on Monday.

"We are now dealing with a pandemic of the unvaccinated, and it's going to take renewed efforts to protect Californians from the dangerous Delta variant," Newsom said. "As the state's largest employer, we are leading by example and [...] encouraging local governments and businesses to do the same. [...] Vaccines are the way we end this pandemic."

Earlier this month, New York City confirmed the report and introduced the same rule for its municipal workers.
