News release: August 26, 2021
Region of Peel will establish Employee Vaccination Policy
BRAMPTON, ON (Aug. 26, 2021) – Today, the Region of Peel announced it will require all Regional employees to disclose and provide documentation of their COVID-19 vaccination status. An Employee Vaccination policy, expected to be in effect by the end of October, will ensure that Regional staff can continue to serve the Peel community in a way that protects them and those around them from COVID-19.
Employees who are not fully vaccinated will be required to complete educational programming about the benefits of the COVID-19 vaccination. They will also need to provide regular negative COVID tests.
Further details, including the Region's full Employee Vaccination policy and activation date, will be available later this fall.
Thanks to the commitment and vigilance of our staff, we have been able to maintain most of our services throughout the pandemic. This policy is meant to encourage our staff to get vaccinated to help our community find a path back to normal.
