President Joe Biden is slated to announce on Thursday new CoVid-19 measures that will be imposed on unvaccinated people.
“There are six steps the president’s announcing, there will be new components,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Wednesday.
“Some of that will be related to access to testing, some will be related to mandates, some will be related to how we ensure kids will be protected in schools,” Psaki added.
Biden is expect to announce new mandates across the board for federal employees along with greater availability of rapid testing kits.
