A federal district court in Louisiana late yesterday issued a preliminary injunction placing a temporary hold on enforcement of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services vaccine mandate for health care facilities in all states, except the 10 already covered by the Missouri district court's preliminary injunction issued on Nov. 29. The federal government is expected to quickly appeal the district court's order to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and ask the appeals court to stay the district court's preliminary injunction pending appeal.
In addition, the federal government yesterday appealed the Missouri district court's decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and asked the court of appeals to stay the Missouri district court's preliminary injunction pending appeal.
