Vaccination May Soon Be Required for Davenport School District Employees
Employees of the Davenport School District may soon be required to get vaccinated against COVID-19, or least be tested regularly. Monday night, the board of education is scheduled to discuss new requirements to comply with orders from the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
If approved, the rule would go into effect for teachers and other staff next week ( 1/10 ), and they would have to be fully vaccinated by February 4th.
Anyone not fully vaccinated would have to provide proof of a negative test every week, and they would have to wear a mask whenever they're indoors, in a vehicle, or other enclosed space.
The vaccine requirement does not apply to Davenport school employees who have a valid medical or religious reason for not being vaccinated.
