Missouri Passes Lowered Vaccine Passport Requirements
Update Applicable to:
All employers in Missouri.
On June 15, 2021, Governor Parson passed House Bill 271 (HB271) into law.
What are the details?
HB 271 states that no county, city, town, or village in Missouri that is receiving public funds may require vaccine documentation in order for a citizen to access transport systems, services, or other public accommodations.
The bill does not apply to private businesses or employers, and employers are still able to mandate vaccinations in workplaces that are consistent with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidance.
The bill can be read here.
