OnFocus – A recent survey by the U.S. Census Bureau’s Small Business Pulse Survey (SBPS) showed that small businesses are overwhelmingly not requiring their staff to get tested or vaccinated for COVID-19.
When asked on the survey if the business required a negative test for its employees to come to work, 10.0% said yes, 70.1% said no and 19.9% said not applicable because they didn’t have employees coming in to work.
The businesses were also asked whether they required employees to get the COVID-19 Vaccine before coming in to work and 2.2% said yes, 78.4% said no, and 19.4% said not applicable. The data showed health care workers were required to get the vaccine before going to work in 62% of instances.
