According to recent survey results from the United States Census Bureau, the majority of small businesses are not requiring COVID-19 tests or vaccines for their employees.
The Census Bureau says 70% of small businesses aren’t requiring workers to test negative.
About 25,000 businesses responded to the survey.
More than 2% said they’re requiring employees to be vaccinated.
However, 62% of businesses — specifically in health care or food service — are having their workers get a vaccine.
Earlier this week, Tyson Foods began administering the vaccine to thousands of its employees across the state of Iowa — including those working at the plant in Columbus Junction.
