Supreme Court Rules on Vaccine Mandates; Philly Mandate Delayed to 1/24; Man Shot at Vineland Wawa
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

On Thursday, 1/13, the U.S. Supreme Court handed the Biden administration mixed rulings on its vaccine mandates. The court voted 6-3 against the mandate requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for all workers at businesses with 100 or more employees. Workers who are not vaccinated would had to have been tested regularly. This would have been enforced by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Alternately, the court ruled 5-4 to allow for the vaccine mandate that will force nearly all health care workers to get the shot. State and local jurisdictions may still impose their own mandates as well as individual businesses.

The City of Philadelphia has pushed back the deadline for all city workers to get vaccinated by a further 10 days. The new deadline is Monday, January 24. The delay is due to ongoing negotiations with unions. Workers must have at least one dose of vaccine by that time. Those employees with an exemption will be required to wear a mask and undergo regular testing. The city says that 81% of city employees are vaccinated or 22,000 workers. 1,300 have received an approved exception. Workers who fail to comply will be deemed ineligible to work and placed on unpaid leaved for 15-days. If they still do not follow the mandate, they could be fired. The recent SCOTUS ruling applies to the federal government's ability to enact a vaccine mandate. Employers (in this case the City) are still allowed to have their own rules.

A man was shot and killed while leaving a Wawa in South Jersey early Friday morning, 1/14. It happened around midnight at 501 N Delsea Drive near Park Avenue in Vineland. 23-year-old Luis Rivera was ambushed as he was exiting the store. The Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office says that "this does not appear to be a random act." They believe that Rivera was targeted. No word on any suspects or motive in this incident. If you have any information, contact Vineland police Det. Christopher Fixler at 856-460-0806 or Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office Major Crimes Unit Det. Paul Panchesine at 856-332-6233.
