South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster has stated that he intends to issue an executive order prohibiting his Cabinet directors from enforcing any COVID-19 vaccine mandate on their employees, directly opposing the Biden administration’s mandate to vaccinate or test employees weekly in businesses with at least 100 employees.
“There should be no mandates. People have ample access to the vaccine,” McMaster told reporters Thursday at the State House. “People have reasons to take the vaccine, and reasons not to. Federal mandates on such a thing have never been done in our history.”
“I will be issuing an Executive Order barring any South Carolina cabinet agency from issuing or enforcing any vaccine mandate.” SC Governor Henry McMaster said.
