President Biden will announce on Thursday new steps in his administration’s COVID-19 response that involves testing, mandates, and school measures depending on a person’s vaccination status, the White House said.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday that the new components would affect people across the country.
“There are six steps the president’s announcing, there will be new components,” Psaki said. “Some of that will be related to access to testing, some will be related to mandates, some will be related to how we ensure kids will be protected in schools.”
The president indicated last week, following the jobs report, that his administration is looking for ways to make it safer for kids to return to school and for workers to return to the office.
Psaki said more will be previewed Thursday when the components are finalized.
