Seguin Township announces mandatory vaccine policy for all staff

Posted on Friday September 17, 2021

Seguin Township announced its COVID-19 vaccination policy for staff earlier this month. All employees were required to disclose and provide proof of vaccination status by September 13, 2021.

Employees who have not been vaccinated or who did not disclose their vaccination status by that date are required to attend mandatory education on the benefits of vaccination.

As of October 30, all township employees will be required to have received their first and second doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine.

“The township has been swift to adapt to and follow all public health guidelines to best protect staff and our community,” says Seguin Township CAO Jason Inwood. “This policy is a continuation of this commitment. Our goal is to continue to provide outstanding service to ratepayers through these challenging times. This policy will help us to continue to do so in the healthiest, safest environment possible.”

Seguin Township will make reasonable accommodation for workers with valid Human Rights Code-based exemptions or medical reasons.

“The vast majority of Seguin staff is vocal in their support of the policy,” says Inwood. “They understand that this fourth wave could get out of control and lead to more lockdowns and more hospital stays. Vaccines are critical in keeping worst-case scenarios at bay and maintaining a safe workplace.”

This policy will also apply to Seguin council, contract workers, and all official committees.

Seguin Township facilities will require proof of vaccination for all visitors – including athletes and spectators at the arena – effective September 22, in line with the provincial regulations. Masking and physical distancing protocols will remain in place. Full details about these protocols, including age-related exceptions, are available here.
