President Joe Biden’s vaccine or weekly testing requirement will apply to all public-sector employees in Maine.

According to the Department of labor this includes teachers and school staff and will also apply to other public entities like state and local governments, the University of Maine System, Maine Turnpike Authority and more.

The mandate requires all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or require any workers who remain unvaccinated to produce a negative COVID-19 test on at least a weekly basis before coming to work.
