Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations Required for EG Staff

September 2, 2021

As many public and private sector organizations are implementing a COVID-19 vaccination policy for staff, we are doing the same in East Gwillimbury. The health and safety of our employees and our community is our priority. That’s why the Town of East Gwillimbury is implementing a mandatory vaccination policy for staff, effective October 1, 2021.

All staff (including full-time, part-time, seasonal, and contract) will be required to receive two doses of a Health Canada-approved COVID-19 vaccine. Staff who have not been vaccinated or do not disclose their vaccination status will be required to attend mandatory education on the benefits of vaccination. The expectation, however, is that all staff will need to conform with the policy unless they have a valid medical or human rights-based exemption.

Development of the policy and related processes is in progress and more information, including expectations for all staff, visitors and contractors, will be shared as soon as it is available.
