The City of Salmon Arm (the “City”) is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for our employees, volunteers and elected officials, as well as for the public we serve. Given the continuing spread of COVID-19 and COVID-19 variants within British Columbia, the City is committed to taking every precaution reasonable in the circumstances to protect its workforce from the hazards of COVID-19.
The City recognizes COVID-19 vaccines as an effective way of reducing the severity of illness associated with COVID-19. The City also recognizes that unvaccinated individuals are at a higher risk than vaccinated individuals of being infected with COVID-19 and transmitting COVID-19 to others.
The purpose of this Proof of Vaccination Policy (“Policy”) is to set out the City’s requirement for contractors to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 as a term and condition of continued employment and engagement with the City.
Please find the COVID-19 Vaccination Attestation Form for your use.
The Policy #6.10 Proof of Vaccination - Contractors comes in to effect on January 31, 2022.
