Late last week, President Biden announced his plans to combat the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Some of that strategy will impact employers – including those with 100 or more employees, as well as federal workers and certain hospitals or other health care facilities.

However, it is unclear when exactly that may happen and it could take weeks. But below are 3 key components of the plan.
