Contra Costa County, California – Today is the last day for teachers and employees from the West Contra Costa Unified District to present evidence of full Covid-19 vaccination.
Vaccination evidence is required for teachers, employees, and volunteers, unless they have a medical or religious exemption. Anyone who will not provide proof will be fired.
“If educators got the exemption, they’ll be required to be PCR tested weekly and share the results with HR,” United Teachers of Richmond President Marissa Glidden said.
The testing will be done by the district.
The mandate applies not only to teachers and employees but to students as well.
Students aged 12 and older must be fully immunized by January 3 in order to continue in-person studying.
The school district is among the first ones in Bay Area to issue a mandate for both teachers and students.
