Co-Author, Polsinelli At Work Blog

On July 26, 2021, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that California state workers, workers in health care, and workers in high-risk congregate setting will be required to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination or undergo weekly testing and wear appropriate PPE. The publication issued by the Governor’s office, which is not considered a “mandate” (yet) has been published as a “measure” to encourage State Employees and Health Care workers to get vaccinated. The measure applies to public and private facilities.
