Tensions and said discrimination claims could arise if people who refuse to get vaccinated for religious or health reasons are treated differently at work — required to mask and distance — than vaccinated people, she added.

Moran also said reading the rules as encouraging vaccinations made sense. “I think there is a very reasonable subtext that those who are vaccinated are going to enjoy a better life,” she said.
