US federal workers must be vaccination or face weekly testing, mask wearing

Millions of federal workers in the US will be required to verify they have been vaccinated against the coronavirus or face mandatory masking, weekly testing, distancing and other new rules.
 
The Associated Press says rather than mandating that federal workers receive vaccines, the plan will make life more difficult for those who are unvaccinated to encourage them to comply.
 
The new strict guidelines announced on Thursday by US President Joe Biden are aimed at boosting sluggish vaccination rates among the four million Americans who draw federal paychecks and to set an example for private employers around the country.
 
His administration is encouraging businesses to follow its lead on incentivizing vaccinations by imposing burdens on the unvaccinated.
