The new policy will help to protect the health and safety of WoodGreen’s employees, volunteers, and clients.
Toronto, Ont. – As of September 7, WoodGreen Community Services is implementing a new policy that requires all of our employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by October 31, 2021. In addition, any on-site volunteers and new employees will also be required to be fully vaccinated.
For us, nothing is more important than the health and well-being of our employees, volunteers, clients, and the communities we serve. Vaccines are the best way to keep our workplaces safe and to help our communities reduce the spread of COVID-19 variants such as Delta. Any cases where employees cannot be vaccinated due to grounds protected by the Ontario Human Rights Act (such as medical reasons) will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
As we have throughout the pandemic, we will continue to follow evolving government and public health regulations and adjust our COVID-19 practices where appropriate. To find all our full vaccination policy, please click here.
