AdventHealth system in Florida will no longer require employees to get the Covid-19 vaccine.
The hospital released that news after a federal court temporarily blocked the Biden Administration from enforcing certain mandates earlier this month.
There have been continuous battles and backlash over the mandate requirements for several months. While the outcome of the court fights remain to be determined, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a Republican, has signed legislation making it easier for people to opt out of the mandates.
One lawyer involved in interpreting the confusing status of mandates says there is great confusion.
