After notifying employees they had 45 days to get fully vaccinated on or before October 7 as a condition of employment, approximately 99 percent of the nation’s largest trial court’s employees have provided proof of full vaccination or requested a medical or religious exemption as required under the Court’s mandatory vaccination policy.
The vaccine mandate, which took effect August 23, did not include judicial officers, as they are state Constitutional Officers and not employees of the Court.
