Geisinger Medical Center, Danville.

WILLIAMSPORT — A federal judge used stern wording Tuesday to shoot down an attempt by 104 Geisinger employees to seek a preliminary injunction that would prevent the health system from terminating unvaccinated workers if they refuse twice-a-week testing for COVID-19.

The plaintiffs, whose length of employment range from two months to 38 years, claim Geisinger violated their rights of medical and religious freedom by not granting religious exemption requests for testing.
