Santa Clara County employees are now required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of employment, according to a memo sent to staff on Thursday.
The memo, which lists certain exemptions, also outlines employees who do not comply face regular testing and discipline, including discharge.
County employees will need to be at least partially vaccinated or must have submitted a request for exemption by Aug. 20. By Sept. 13, all county employees must be fully vaccinated, according to the memo.
