As per the Governor’s executive order, unvaccinated employees, including those with medical and religious exemptions, must continue to report weekly testing results until further notice. Further information on testing and vaccines can be found at ct.gov/coronavirus. Just type in your zip code in the appropriate box, and click “GO”.
In a recent communication, COO Geballe warned that “Employees who do not complete the process will be subject to unpaid leave and possible separation from state service,” but at this time, all employees should report to work according to their normal schedule unless otherwise notified.
The State of Connecticut takes public safety very seriously, which is evidenced by our status as having the highest vaccination rate in the nation. As state employees, we owe it to our communities to take all possible measures to assure our own safety alongside the safety of those we serve–be it family, friends, or colleagues.
If you have not already, please complete the Attestation Form. For those who cannot be vaccinated, please remain diligent about being tested on a weekly basis until further notice. For those who are partially vaccinated, please continue weekly testing until you are fully vaccinated. On-site vaccination and testing clinics are held each Monday in October.
