RENO, Nev. — Nevada officials believe some state employees may follow through on threats to quit their jobs if forced to get COVID-19 shots.
But they said Thursday they expect most will comply with Gov. Steve Sisolak’s mandate that workers at health care facilities and prisons be vaccinated by Nov. 1 or face administrative leave or reassignment.
DuAne Young, the governor’s policy director, says they are developing contingency plans in the event more people quit their jobs than expected and monitoring the situation closely.
He says they believe there will be some attrition, but in the end, most state employees will “step up and do what is right.”
