A North Carolina-based health care system has suspended hundreds of employees for not getting a Covid-19 vaccine

A North Carolina-based health care provider announced Tuesday it has suspended hundreds of employees for not meeting the company’s Covid-19 vaccine requirements.

Nuwe gesondheid says employees, by now, must have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine or applied forand receiveda medical or religious exemption.
Those that hadn’t — oor 375 workers across 15 hospitals and hundreds of clinics and outpatient facilitiesare now suspended.
      Anyone who doesn’t comply with the vaccine policy within the five-day, unpaid suspension period will lose their job, the Winston Salem-based company said.
        Oor 98.6% of the company’s more than 35,000 workers are complaint with the policy, dit het gesê.
          Workers who started a two-dose vaccine series will now have until October 15 to get their second dose and remain in compliance, het die maatskappy gesê.
          Employees that receive exemptions are required to undergo weekly Covid-19 testing, and wear N95 respirators, masks or other appropriate protective equipment and eye protection while working on Novant Health premises, het die maatskappy gesê.
            President Joe Biden, while announcing sweeping vaccine rules for federal workers and large employers earlier this month, also said he would require the 17 million health care workers at facilities receiving funds from Medicare and Medicaid to be fully vaccinated, including at hospitals, home care facilities and dialysis centers.
            Besides Novant Health, ander health care systems and hospitals have similarly suspended or terminated the jobs of people who did not comply with vaccine policies.
