Attorney General Brnovich Releases Statement on SCOTUS Rulings for Biden’s COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates     

Big Idea

  • AG Brnovich appreciates the decision to stop vaccine mandate for private businesses
  • It is unfortunate that healthcare workers are not afforded the same rights
  • Private businesses do not have to mandate vaccines
  • The vaccine requirement for health care workers is still in effect
  • Brnovich’s lawsuit is still ongoing
  •


'We must all stand together to preserve our country’s Constitution...'  

PHOENIX -- While Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich appreciates today’s Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) decision to stop the federal government’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for private businesses, he is disappointed health care workers are not afforded the same rights.

“We must all stand together to preserve our country’s Constitution, states’ sovereignty, and our individual liberties, especially in times of emergency," said Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich. "The federal government doesn’t get to be your nanny, and it shouldn't get to be your doctor."

Today’s SCOTUS decision for private employers stems from a lawsuit General Brnovich and other attorneys general filed to stop the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for private businesses with more than 100 employees. The rules promulgated by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) require private employers to mandate their employees get vaccinated or implement weekly testing and mask requirements. Non-compliant businesses would face steep fines.

SCOTUS also ruled today that the vaccine requirement for health care workers is in effect. While General Brnovich is disappointed in this decision, his lawsuit is still ongoing.

Additional AGO Actions: 
General Brnovich has been at the forefront of pushing back against the Biden administration’s unconstitutional COVID-19 vaccine mandates. In September, he filed the first lawsuit in the country against the Biden Administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal employees and federal contractors. Since then, three additional lawsuits have been filed:

Brnovich v. Biden (Federal Employees and Contractors)
Multistate Coalition v. Biden (OSHA Rules)
Multistate Coalition v. HHS (CMS Mandate)
Multistate Coalition v. Becerra (Requires masks for toddlers and COVID-19 vaccines for staff)
