Mandatory Covid testing only for certain individuals?
Singling out a class of people who have chosen to not have the EUA injections/experimental clinical trial for repeated Covid testing - while not requiring the same of those who have had the injections (and are increasingly getting reinfected) puts at risk people who are taking other effective treatments. The only safe and fair way forward in this situation is to have EVERYONE tested continually. Advice please.

You do not have any constitutionally valid argument here. A US Supreme Court decision that is 116 years old addresses this. Nor is there a valid scientific argument. Everyone is still getting infected because of the unvaccinated and the development of the new strain (with another one apparently on the horizon) resulting from lack of full vaccination. You do not have a right to put other people at risk. I will also note you have been mandated numerous other vaccines in your life as well as numerous other public safety mandates.
TO ALL QUESTIONERS: I provide this answer in an effort to assist and guide only. The answers are qualified further by you providing the full and complete facts and background or not, and by the space limitations of this forum. The answer does not serve as a substitute for a live sit-down with an attorney. In no way is any answer to be construed as a formal giving of legal advice nor is an attorney-client relationship formed. You are not permitted to quote or refer to answers given in any court pleading or hearing. TO QUESTIONERS FROM WV & NY: Although I am licensed to practice in your state, be advised that I practice on a day-to-day basis in Massachusetts. I answer questions in your state in areas of the law in which I practice, and in which I feel comfortable trying to offer you assistance based on my knowledge of specific statutes in your state and/or general principles applicable in all states. Being licensed to practice there, however, does not provide me with the detailed knowledge of local procedures and practices that comes from day-to-day work. It is always best to work with attorneys and court personnel in your own area to deal with specific problems and factual situations.
The FDA approved it. It is no longer EUA. Suck it up and get vaccinated or get tested weekly.
