The Justice Department on Monday asked a federal appeals court to allow the Biden administration to resume enforcing a federal employee vaccine mandate that had been blocked by a lower-court judge in January.

A 5th Circuit U.S. appeals court panel on Thursday reinstated President Joe Biden's executive order mandating that federal civilian employees be vaccinated against COVID-19.

The Justice Department on Monday asked the appeals court to take "appropriate steps so that the government may resume implementation and enforcement" of Biden's executive order.
