All employees and providers are required to be vaccinated for COVID-19. Those who are unvaccinated must receive their first dose of a multi-dose COVID-19 vaccine series (Pfizer or Moderna vaccines) or single-dose COVID-19 vaccine (Johnson & Johnson vaccine) by January 27, 2022, and must be fully vaccinated by February 28, 2022. Those who receive their final vaccine dose but are not yet 14-days post-vaccination by February 28, 2022, will be considered compliant. However, if you are working in a hospital location that has set earlier deadlines for mandatory vaccination, you are required to comply with those deadlines.
This requirement applies to all current and new staff regardless of clinical responsibility or patient contact, including facility employees; licensed practitioners; administrative, corporate, and billing personnel; students; trainees; volunteers; board members; and others providing services for the facility or its patients under contract or other arrangement (such as housekeeping and laboratory services).
Although FDA approved and CDC recommended, an additional (third) or "booster dose" of the COVID-19 vaccine is not currently required in order for staff to be considered "fully vaccinated."

The CDC has emphasized that masks should still be worn in all healthcare settings. Staff, patients, residents, and visitors should continue to wear masks in all healthcare facilities, regardless of vaccination status. The only exception is if the employee is in an office, alone, or actively eating or drinking. Employees should not congregate in break rooms and should practice social distancing when possible.
Fully vaccinated corporate office staff do not have to wear a mask. Unvaccinated corporate office staff must wear a mask at all times, even at cubicles, except when in an enclosed office, alone, or actively eating or drinking. Corporate employees should not congregate in break rooms and should practice social distancing when possible.
COVID screenings (with temperature check) remain MANDATORY for all corporate office staff and to enter any outpatient facility and the Recovery Center. The Recovery Center should screen patients over the phone before picking up for transportation to the Center, and should conduct a temperature check of the patient in-person.
Employees experiencing symptoms, regardless of vaccination status, should notify their supervisor when symptoms first start and get tested. Employees who fail to communicate a positive COVID-19 test will be subject to disciplinary action, including, up to, immediate termination.
