Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts says he plans to join other Republican governors in challenging U.S. President Joe Biden’s request for the vaccine in court.

Tha Ricketts Fox News on Sundaythat the Nebraska Attorney General has been consulting with other attorneys general who believe the federal government is exceeding its authority by ordering all employers with more than 100 employees to request that they be vaccinated or tested for virus every week, affecting about 80 million Americans. Approximately 17 million workers at health facilities receiving federal Medicare or Medicaid will also need to be fully vaccinated.

“This is really going to create big problems for all the small businesses and for our American workers,” Ricketts said. “You don’t have to make the choice to keep your job or get a kick in the arm.”

In Nebraska, Ricketts has encouraged people to get vaccinated and wear masks, but he has resisted mandates to do one or the other.

The seven-day moving average of new day cases in Nebraska has risen over the past two weeks from 715.14 new cases per day on Aug. 27 to 822.86 new cases per day on Friday, as the highly contagious delta variant of the virus spreads.

Ricketts said he is focused on ensuring that hospitals have sufficient capacity to cope with the increase in COVID-19 cases.

In Arkansas, Govt. Asa Hutchins said the federal vaccination mandate undermines efforts to overcome public resistance to getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

The Republican governor has been prominent in his work to persuade reluctant Arkansas residents to get vaccinated against the coronavirus. But in an appearance on NBC’s Meet the presson Sunday, Hutchinson said a comprehensive federal vaccination mandate “strengthens resistance.”

The measure will be implemented through an interim emergency standard issued by the US Department of Labor (OSHA) Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which regulates jobs. The rule is expected in the coming weeks and it was not clear when it would take effect.

OSHA can enforce an emergency standard when workers are exposed to a “major hazard” and the standard is needed to protect them. This allows the agency to shorten the usual process of developing a standard, which averages seven years.

While many large employers have said they plan to agree, some businesses are also likely to sue.

IN Europe, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will announce how his government plans to control the coronavirus during the fall and winter. He hopes vaccinations, not restrictions, will keep COVID-19 in check.

At a news conference Tuesday, Johnson is expected to say that wearing masks, work-from-home advice and social distancing rules that were lifted in July could be reversed if cases escalate. But his conservative government is resisting tougher measures.

She has abruptly canceled a plan to introduce vaccine passports to nightclubs and other crowded places. Britain is recording more than 100 coronavirus deaths a day, and around 8,000 people have been hospitalized with COVID-19. That’s less than a quarter of the winter peak, but the number is growing.
