Hanford workers have until December 8 for a full vaccination, otherwise …
A brand new email sent to workers at a Hanford cleaning contractor shows employees now have until December 8 to offer full proof of vaccination; unless they have been granted an exemption.
When Biden initially announced his federal “mandate” for companies with more than 100 workers to be vaccinated, there were indications that the deadlines would be in mid-September — including for workers in Hanford (federal).
However, a multitude of lawsuits across the country fragmented the delay. Some companies are putting them in place, others are waiting to see what happens. It’s everywhere.
This a particular email was sent to the workers of The Central plateau cleaning company, or CPCco on Sept. 30, 2021. They are the primary contractor for the site cleanup and the millions of gallons of hazardous waste, according to their website.
This email will likely affect thousands of workers. He read in part:
“On September 24, Federal Workforce Security Task Force published advice on implementation of President Biden’s Executive Order on Ensuring Adequate COVID Security Protocols for Federal Contractors. According to these guidelines, employees of contractors and subcontractors, including teleworkers, must be fully immunized by December 8, unless they are exempted for religious or medical reasons.
Employees will be considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 two weeks after receiving the second dose of a two-dose series, or two weeks after receiving a single dose vaccine. The dates below represent the last date on which a person can receive the vaccination and be considered fully vaccinated before the deadline of December 8. “
He goes on to mention that workers will receive various updates, and information on vaccination and opportunities at HPMC for the vaccine are available (appointments) and other resources. It also lists a table showing in graph form the immunization levels and dates required.
The email also contains this:
“Ultimately, vaccination will be a condition of employment at CPCCo, so don’t wait.
Our source said a number of workers are concerned about their status on December 8 or beyond.
