The order covers 8,000 employees
Vancouver is mandating its municipal staff to be vaccinated against COVID-19 by December in a bid to reduce the impact of the pandemic on the city. In an announcement, the city government said municipal staff should be fully immunised against COVID-19 by December 6. Those who’re non-compliant will be barred from entering the workplace. The mandate covers about 8,000 employees in the city, CTV News reported. However, it will not include employees from the Vancouver Public Library, Vancouver Police Department, elected city councillors, and park board commissioners.
