Yes! ALL City of Durham employees are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.
On March 31, Group 4 vaccination opened up to "other" essential workers. Any City employee who was not previously eligible for vaccination under Groups 1, 2, or 3 would be considered an essential worker and would therefore be eligible for Group 4 vaccination.
No. The COVID vaccine is not mandatory for any City employee at this time.
Yes. Unless otherwise noted, employees should continue following all COVID-related policies and guidance detailed on the COVID-19 Updates & Resources for City Employees web page, regardless of their vaccination status.
Please note that some protocols, such as the indoor mask requirement, are required by the local government(s) in which we operate and are not just our organization’s protocols. Everyone, including City employees and visitors, must adhere to these protocols as they are temporary laws.
City Manager Wanda Page has made it clear that local, state, and CDC public health guidance — not employee vaccination status — will be the determining factor in future return-to-work decisions, both at an individual and an organizational level.
