Americans who lie about their vaccination status can face a fine of up to $10,000 and six months of imprisonment, according to new rules from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
OSHA released guidance Thursday specifying the requirements for businesses with 100 or more employees mandating employees get the vaccine or be subject to weekly testing. Under the guidance, anyone who “knowingly makes any false statement, representation, or certification” about their vaccination status can be fined up to $10,000 and or face six months jail time.
