OSHA withdraws vax-or-test ETS, but plows ahead with proposed rule

Not official use.
Yesterday, OSHA announced that it will withdraw its COVID-19 vaccine-or-test emergency temporary standard effective January 26, 2022. But, ETS's are generally submitted as proposed rules that will go through the administrative rulemaking process and grow up into "real" regulations. OSHA announced it "is not withdrawing the ETS as a proposed rule."

Given the Supreme Court's ruling, I doubt OSHA will plow ahead with a rule that is identical to the ETS. For now, the vax-or-test ETS mandate is off, but a final rule is still coming together.
