New Jersey Federal Courts Requiring COVID-19 Vaccine or Negative Tests

Author: Jessica C. PooranDate: October 13, 2021

COVID-19 vaccine mandates are becoming increasingly prevalent in light of the Delta variant. On September 14, 2021, the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey announced that all visitors must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test. Federal courts in California, New York, Texas, and Maryland have also adopted vaccine policies.

The New Jersey District Court had previously established a policy mandating that all employees of the U.S. District Court, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Probation, and Pretrial Services, in the District of New Jersey (“court employees”), be fully vaccinated by October 19, 2021. Under standing order 2021-08, visitors will also be subject to new vaccine/testing requirements.
