Is the vaccine mandatory for employees?
No, the vaccine is not mandatory at this time; however, we strongly encourage all eligible employees to get vaccinated to help keep you and the individuals we serve safe. Always consult your health care provider with questions or concerns prior to getting vaccinated.
Why does the company want to know if employees have been vaccinated?
We are collecting this information about your vaccination status to monitor compliance with safety rules and, in some cases, to be in compliance with state, local, or regulatory mandates. Your response will be kept confidentially and only used for safety compliance purposes. You can self-report your vaccination here.
I’m fully vaccinated. Do I still need to wear a mask?
Our mask policy remains the same. We’re still in the midst of the pandemic, and it’s important that we continue to take steps to help prevent the spread of illness and protect the people we serve and each other. You can access our employee mask policy on iServe under My News.
I had side effects from the vaccine and needed to take a sick day. Do I get sick pay for time taken off for side effects?
You may use accrued paid time off if you aren’t able to work due to vaccine side effects.
