Results for - Ontario weighing COVID-19 vaccination requirements for certain jobs
Ontario government officials are considering the pros and cons of requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for health-care workplaces, CBC News has learned. A draft provincial document obtained by CBC News reveals the government is wading through the legal and ethical issues involved in developing vaccination policies for certain employment sectors.
1. Although the document frequently refers to "mandatory vaccination," the policy it ultimately recommends would not actually require any workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Rather, it would allow unvaccinated health-care workers to have contact with patients, provided that they wear full protective equipment (PPE) and undergo frequent screening for the coronavirus. Do you agree with this policy?
2. The document says some employers are asking the government to provide clear rules on whether they can demand proof of vaccination from their workers, and whether they can require employees to be fully vaccinated. Should employers be able to require proof of vaccination?
3. Starting this weekend, Manitoba is opening cinemas, casinos and a CFL game only to people who are fully vaccinated. Do you agree with this policy?
4. A few universities and colleges have announced some vaccination requirements for the fall, either for students living in residence or for students and staff coming to campus. Do you agree with this policy?
