Oregon law says that workplaces can require employees to get the COVID vaccine, according to the Bureau of Labor and Industries.
The state agency released new information this week about the news, saying that workplaces may also make exceptions.
Employers are not required to mandate the vaccine, however. And until the vaccine is widely available to the public, many of these guidances do not yet apply.
BOLI has a FAQ on their website with more information.
