Ahead of President Joe Biden’s announcement Thursday about new COVID-19 measures, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that there may be new measures that will be imposed on unvaccinated people.
“There are six steps the president’s announcing, there will be new components,” Psaki told reporters on Wednesday.
“Some of that will be related to access to testing, some will be related to mandates, some will be related to how we ensure kids will be protected in schools.”
When asked about how the new steps would impact Americans’ lives, Psaki said that “it depends on if you’re vaccinated or not.”
Psaki provided few details on what mandates could be imposed on unvaccinated Americans.
On Tuesday, she told reporters on Air Force One that the federal government lacks the authority to mandate vaccines for everyone.
“There will be new components that sure, will of course impact people across the country, but we’re also all working together to get the virus under control, to return to our normal lives,” Psaki also said, without elaborating, on Wednesday.
