Employee COVID-19 Vaccination Policy 

HRA has a responsibility to provide a safe and healthful workplace for its employees that is free from serious recognized hazards, including COVID-19. Although HRA has taken measures to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission at work, research has shown that no measure is as effective as vaccination against the virus. Therefore, in an effort to keep employees healthy and safe at work and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, HRA requires all staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, unless a medical or religious exemption applies. Employees receiving a medical or religious exemption will be required to submit a weekly, time-stamped, negative COVID test to Human Resources.
