Bulletin 7 – 23
This is an update to bulletin 5-23 regarding the COVID-19 vaccine mandate and weekly testing requirement.
On February 14, 2023 the Los Angeles City Council approved a motion that ended the weekly surveillance COVID testing. This means that the weekly testing requirement that applied to many of our members is no longer in existence.
In addition, all exemption requests submitted by UFLAC members prior to January 31, 2023 will be approved within the next 30 days.
All impacted members should have already received notification about these changes. If you did not, please contact a UFLAC Executive Board Member.
With this action from the city, the hardest aspects of the vaccine mandate and the impact it had on our members should be coming to a close. We know how difficult these decisions were and how much division they caused in our workplaces. Thank you to all members who followed UFLAC’s advice throughout the process and continued to work while submitting exemption requests.
Please reach out if you have any questions.
UFLAC Executive Board
