Gov. Reynolds released the following statement today in response to the Eighth Circuit’s ruling denying a stay of the district court’s injunction of the CMS vaccine mandate rule while the case is on appeal:    

“The court made the right decision,” Gov. Reynolds said. “This mandate would have only worsened the workforce shortage in our healthcare system, leaving Iowans without the care they need. President Biden should rescind this unlawful rule and respect the personal liberties and freedoms of our healthcare workers.”
