California bill would establish COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all business employees

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A California bill aims to require all businesses in the state to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for their employees.

Democratic Assms. Buffy Wicks of Oakland, Cecilia Aguiar-Curry of Winters, Evan Low of Cupertino and Akila Weber of San Diego introduced Assembly Bill 1993 last week.

The bill would require all businesses in California to have their employees show proof that they either have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or have a religious or medical reason not to get the shot.
