The Plumas County Board of Supervisors was asked to approve a COVID-19 vaccination status policy during a special meeting today, Sept. 28, but said “no.”
The policy would require county employees working in the healthcare realm (such as the behavioral and public health departments) to be vaccinated or provide a medical or religious exemption, as well as submit to weekly testing.
Nancy Selvage, the county’s human resources director, presented the policy but made it clear that it was her job responsibility not a personal preference. The policy would bring the county in line with the state order laid down Aug. 5 to be implemented by Sept. 30.
Engel made the motion not to adopt the policy, and by roll call his fellow supervisors unanimously agreed.
