The Board of Education passed a unanimous resolution requiring that all MCPS staff be vaccinated.
The resolution requires that all staff employed by MCPS provide verification that they have received at least the first COVID-19 shot by Sept. 30, 2021, and verification of the second shot by Oct. 29, 2021, unless staff request an exemption based on a medical reason documented by a medical doctor.
If a medical exemption is granted, the employee must submit to regular COVID-19 testing as required by MCPS.
The Board passed this resolution as an added layer of protection, particularly for younger students who are not eligible to be vaccinated.
A series of vaccination clinics hosted by MCPS, DHHS, and other healthcare providers will be conducted across the county.
