Confusion: W.H. Says Business Vaccine Mandate Will Apply to Postal Service, 'If That Is the Rule,' and U.S.P.S. Falls Under It

On Thursday's broadcast of CNN's "Don Lemon Tonight," Biden Senior Adviser and Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement Cedric Richmond stated that "it appears" that the Postal Service will not fall under the vaccine requirement for federal employees because they're an independent agency, "but to the extent that they would fall under our labor standards, if that is the rule, then that's where it's going to fall." And that "if they fall under labor standards, then the rules will apply to them."
