Dear CEO Staff,
Yesterday, President Biden announced a vaccine mandate for all federal employees and contractors, specifically Head Start and Early Head Start staff. As of today, we have not received notice that other funding sources are supporting this mandate, however, we expect this to be a full federal and state mandate that will apply to all agency staff in the coming months.
As we continue to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, the vaccine is the best tool we have to keep ourselves, our children, and their families as safe and healthy as possible. If you have not yet been vaccinated, please make arrangements to do so as soon as possible. The available COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. They prevent death and the most severe forms of the disease and keep those around us safe.
Thank you for your cooperation and thank you for being a part of the Team CEO!
