Brampton hospital COVID-19 vax policy will not provide options for negative tests

Following yesterday’s announcement of a mandatory vaccine policy at their hospitals in Brampton and Etobicoke, William Osler Health System has provided some additional details.
Osler didn’t provide a spokesperson, but its communications department responded to several questions.
Unlike some other vaccine mandates, Osler’s policy does not allow for any exemption other than one that is approved medically. There is no option for staff to opt out of a vaccine and provide negative COVID-19 tests.
The policy applies to all staff, physicians, volunteers, students, medical learners, contractors and service providers.
Staff who refuse to either get a vaccine or disclose their vaccine status will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
The policy will go into full force on Nov. 7, giving everyone plenty of time to be properly informed of the policy as well as get both doses of the vaccine and become fully vaccinated.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
