Washington: US President Joe Biden said Thursday he is “disappointed” in the Supreme Court decision striking down his mandate for medium and large businesses to vaccinate or test their employees for COVID-19.

“I am disappointed that the Supreme Court has chosen to block common-sense life-saving requirements for employees at large businesses that were grounded squarely in both science and the law,” Biden said in a statement.

Biden called on employers to “do the right thing to protect Americans’ health and economy.”
