Guardians’ employees face COVID vaccine mandate or termination: report

Author: | Posted in Sports No comments

That Cleveland Guardians has become the latest professional sports team to implement a COVID vaccine mandate, warning employees that anyone who fails to comply with Jan. 3 will face “termination,” according to a report.

An email sent to employees last month, obtained by FanSided, informed them that they must be fully vaccinated by January 3, unless they receive a dispensation and must have the first dose by December 20. .

“To be fully vaccinated, two weeks must have elapsed after receiving either the second shot of a two-shot vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) or the only single-dose Johnson & Johnson Vaccine shot,” the e-mail read. . .

“This means that – without exception – all Executive Office and Service Level employees must receive either their second Moderna / Pfizer shot or a single Johnson and Johnson shot by December 20, 2021. Remember: there are approximately three weeks ( “Pfizer) or four-week (Modern) intervals between the first and second doses of the two-dose vaccines, so compliance with these deadlines will require advanced planning. Failure to comply with this policy will result in termination.”

The Guardians did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

The deadline for Cleveland’s team members comes a day before the Biden administration’s mandate.

On Tuesday, the administration asked a federal court to let it go ahead with a workplace rule that would require employees of larger companies to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or face weekly tests.

If enforced, the OSHA rule will take effect on January 4 and apply to private companies with 100 employees or more, affecting about 84 million workers across the United States. They must be vaccinated or subjected to weekly tests and must wear masks at occupation. There are exceptions for employees who work from home, alone or outdoors.
