Vaccine Mandate: Litigation Update

On November 30, 2021, the Western District Court of Louisiana issued a nationwide preliminary injunction against the CMS Omnibus COVID-19 Health Care Staff Vaccination Interim Final Rule (IRF). In light of the Eastern District of Missouri Courtโ€™s preliminary injunction, the nationwide injunction applies to all states except Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, New Hampshire, Nebraska, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota. The Western District Court of Louisiana explicitly excludes the 10 states under the scope of the other Courtโ€™s jurisdiction. This means currently, all CMS facilities across the nation are required to cease all implementation and enforcement of the IFR until further orders from a Court.
