The County of Essex is implementing a mandatory vaccination policy requiring all employees to be partially vaccinated by no later than September 7th and fully vaccinated no later than October 30th.

“We are taking this step for the health and safety of our employees and our community,” said CAO Mike Galloway. “A fourth wave of COVID-19 fuelled by the Delta variant is at our doorstep, and vaccination is our most effective weapon against severe illness and death. We are grateful to all our employees who have already rolled up their sleeves and been fully vaccinated. This is how we can save lives and reduce the pressure on our health-care system.”

This policy will make vaccinations mandatory for all County of Essex employees, including those who work with Essex-Windsor Emergency Medical Services and Sun Parlor Home. It also applies to contractors and visitors to County of Essex facilities.

Exceptions will only be made under this policy for employees who require a medical exemption or have a bona fide religious objection under the Ontario Human Rights Code.
