Arlington Co. Mandates COVID Vaccine for Government, School Employees

Arlington County is requiring all government employees and public school personnel to be vaccinated against the coronavirus beginning on Aug. 30.

The mandate includes interns, volunteers, substitutes and contractors.

“Arlington County is requiring vaccinations for its employees because it’s the best way to keep people safe, especially as the region sees an increasing trend of COVID-19 cases,” said County Manager Mark Schwartz, WUSA-TV (Channel 9) reported. “Our top priority continues to be the health and well-being of our employees, residents and community. When anyone visits a county government facility, they deserve to know that we have done everything in our power to protect them from COVID-19.”

County officials said schools and government services must stay open. County employees and public school staffers have been offered vaccines, a news release said Thursday.

Unvaccinated employees will be required to be tested at least weekly for the coronavirus at no cost to them.
