UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — In compliance with an executive order from President Joe Biden, all Penn State employees — including faculty, staff, technical service employees, Penn State Extension staff, students supported on wage payroll, and graduate students supported on graduate assistantships — at University Park and eight Commonwealth Campuses are subject to the federal contractor COVID-19 vaccination requirement. 这一项目也扩展到了宾州州立医学院,在赫尔希和大学公园. 

Employees covered under the federal contractor mandate must upload proof to the University that they have received their final vaccine dose — either their second dose of Pfizer or Moderna, or single dose of Johnson & Johnson — by Jan. 4 or be granted a disability/medical- or religious-related accommodation by the University. 住宿将包括要求每周测试的大学测试方案. Employees who wait until Jan. 他们的最后一剂疫苗将在每周测试方案中进行,并持续两周,直到他们被认为完全接种疫苗.  

At this time, 宾州所有其他地方的雇员都要遵守职业安全与健康管理局(OSHA)关于疫苗接种和测试的紧急临时标准(ETS), which applies to employers with 100 or more employees. 根据OSHA ETS,在这些地点的员工必须在1月1日之前收到他们的最后一剂疫苗. 4 or test weekly for COVID-19. 大学正在密切关注OSHA ETS和, at this time, is continuing with its plans to comply with the ETS. 

“我想感谢我们社区所有已经接种疫苗的成员,以及那些正在完全接种COVID-19疫苗的人,” said Nick Jones, executive vice president and provost. “However, to comply with the federal contractor mandate, 我们需要让所有受影响校园的员工在1月前接种最后一剂疫苗,或接受批准的住宿. 4. To encourage employee compliance, we have developed tiered methods that include education, conversations with supervisors and unit executives and, for continued noncompliance, eventual disciplinary actions.” 

该大学将依靠现有的手机买球app下载政策和人力资源程序, including potential disciplinary actions, 对于那些在1月4日之前没有获得批准的住宿或接受最后一剂疫苗的个人,联邦承包商的命令已经覆盖了他们. 因为OSHA ETS可以选择每周进行COVID-19检测,而不是接种疫苗, 在OSHA ETS覆盖的地方工作的员工将不会因为没有接种疫苗而受到潜在的制裁, provided they comply with testing requirements.  

“To help bring employees into compliance, 我们依靠现有政策制定了一个分阶段实施的过程,其中包括鼓励接种疫苗的多个步骤,” said Lorraine Goffe, vice president for human resources and chief human resources officer. “具体的合规程序根据个人在该大学的分类而有所不同, 但随着时间的推移,他们都有步骤来帮助员工遵守联邦命令,他们都最终涉及到对持续不遵守的纪律措施,直到, and including, termination from employment.”
