The morning after President Biden announced the Executive Orders related to required vaccines, I received a flood of calls/emails asking, “Does that apply to us?”

The orders were for federal contractors. CILs that receive direct grants (Part C) are grantees, not contractors. The executive orders do not apply to CILs.

Some centers are requiring staff to be vaccinated. Staff may request a reasonable accommodation for religious or disability reasons. Centers that grant this accommodation are sometimes requiring testing, most typically weekly, if the staff person works in person or from the office.

Does the executive order apply?

      Yes, you still fall under the requirements if you have 100 employees or more.

    Thank you for this interpretation. We will also wait for our attorney’s own interpretation. We are considered vendors, not grantees in MA, as we have to sign actual contracts. We would consider being a grantee for small grants such as from the United Way. They do not require contract signatures and specific benchmarks for us to achieve and are required to perform. I find this all interesting.
    Thank you,
