Crete Carrier Corporation Chairman and CEO Tonn Ostergard appeared on Fox News on Nov. 8, 2021 to discuss the potential impact of the proposed vaccine mandate on the trucking industry. Tonn shares concerns that a significant number of drivers may leave trucking if the mandate is eventually implemented. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has announced plans to require workers at companies with more than 100 employees to be fully vaccinated or face weekly COVID tests. The proposed rule has temporarily been suspended by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
