“COVID-19 vaccinations are the very best available line of defense against this virus. Many of us work directly with the public, and all of us have a responsibility not only to one another, but also to the members of our community who come before us,” Pallmeyer said.

All employees must attest to their vaccination status by August 16, 2021.
