Booster Policy Announcement for Employees of the Archdiocese

December 28, 2021

NEW YORK – As part of our ongoing effort to provide a safe workplace that protects the health and safety of all our employees, a new policy went into effect that required all of our employees who work in the office to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination by October 15, 2021.

COVID-19 is still with us, and new, more contagious variants that were not present in previous months continue to arise. It is now increasingly clear that the best way we can protect our workplace is to get a booster shot.

All employees who are eligible for a booster are required to provide proof of the booster by Monday, January 17, 2022. Employees who are not in compliance with this policy will be placed on unpaid leave until they are in compliance with the workplace policy.

The Chancellor will consider requests for reasonable accommodation to be exempt from vaccination on a case-by-case basis and only to those with medical conditions identified by the CDC that prevent them from safely being vaccinated, or those who reject vaccination because of sincerely held religious beliefs.

Even those in compliance with the policy should continue to follow all current guidance to protect themselves and others.
