St. Clair Township employees have until Dec.14 to provide proof of shots under a new mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy council has approved.
The policy applies to all employees, volunteers, firefighters, council members, individuals appointed by council, and students.
Those who don’t comply must complete a mandatory education program by Dec. 21 and take weekly COVID-19 rapid antigen testing on their own time and expense, the township confirmed.
“When we return to in-person meetings in the New Year, attendance in person will be conduced in accordance with the COVID-19 guidelines and recommendations,” said Human Resource Coordinator Kelly Gibson.
An option to participate at meetings via Zoom will remain in place.
Mayor Steve Arnold opted not to vote on the policy.
