President Joe Biden announced new measures to boost vaccinations including requiring that all federal workers “attest to their vaccination status.” He added “anyone who does not attest or is not vaccinated will be required to mask no matter where they work, test one or two times a week to see if they've acquired Covid, socially distance, and generally will not be allowed to travel for work.” U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy tells Anderson Cooper he hopes that other institutions will “look at the steps the President took” and he hopes “this movement continues to grow.” Plus, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plan to meet with the President to discuss the path forward on voting rights legislation. Former U.S. Congressman Beto O’Rourke is currently participating in a four-day “Moral March for Democracy” to put pressure on the Biden administration to advance the bill. The Texas Democrat joins AC360 to discuss what passing federal voting rights legislation could mean for the country.
