Updated Recommendations for Workplace Vaccinations

Much progress has been made to slow the pandemic in our county within the past 15 months. To date, more than 83% of people 12 and older in our county have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

We have a lot to celebrate for now, but we must not lower our guard. With COVID-19 cases rapidly on the rise, leaving unvaccinated individuals at risk for serious illness and death, the health officers of Contra Costa, Santa Clara, and San Francisco counties strongly urge all employers to consider implementing workplace COVID-19 safety policies that require their workforce to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible.

For any employees who are not yet fully vaccinated, employers must require and enforce masking under current state law. In addition, employers are encouraged to require frequent COVID-19 testing of unvaccinated employees.
