Montgomery County Public Schools Staffer Sues Over COVID Vaccine Mandate

A Montgomery County Public Schools employee is taking the school system to court in protest of its coronavirus vaccine mandate, which he says goes against his religious beliefs.

The suit, filed by the Center for American Liberty on the plaintiff’s behalf, says he attempted to get a religious exemption but was denied, WUSA-TV (Channel 9) reported.

The school district requires all staff members to be fully vaccinated by Oct. 29, with the first vaccine shot occurring by Sept. 30.

The staff member said in the suit that he fears for his job over refusing to get the vaccine, which he believes would be a sin.

“Their policy is that you don’t get vaccinated and you don’t have a medical exemption, that’s what the policy says, nothing about religious exemptions, you will be terminated,” said Harmeet Dhillon, CEO and founder of the Center for American Liberty, WUSA reported. “So, you know that’s obviously problematic for somebody who wants to continue in his job.”

MCPS did not immediately respond to a WUSA request for comment, the station reported late Wednesday.
