Covid-19 Vaccination Mandate for Long-Term Care Employees
August 23rd, 2021 - Voyage Long Term Care
As many of you have heard in recent news, on August 18th President Biden announced a plan that will require long-term care and skilled nursing facility employees to be vaccinated against Covid-19. We recognize that this announcement will bring about questions that you may have regarding Voyage Long Term Care’s policy, and your individual community’s policy regarding this announcement.
Currently, we do not have a vaccination mandate in place. We are working with CMS and the State of Oklahoma to determine our next course of action. As it stands, there have been no guidelines or parameters put forth by the current Administration that outlines exactly how this process will work.
We understand that every team member has a choice and a right to make their own healthcare decisions and we stand behind that right as an organization. We will continue to operate as normal until otherwise directed by State and Federal Administration.
If you have any questions regarding the policy, please direct them to your Administrator or to the HR Hotline at 1-855-950-3264.
We thank you for the hard work that you put forth every single day to ensure our residents continue to receive the highest quality care possible and we appreciate each and every one of you and know that together we will accomplish remarkable things.
