St. Andrew's at New Florence Is Requiring Employee Vaccinations

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the priority at St. Andrew’s Resources for Seniors System has been to ensure a safe home for residents and a safe workplace for employees. In a further effort to best limit risks for the vulnerable people they care for and to continue to ensure they protect employees, St. Andrew’s at New Florence is requiring employees start the COVID-19 vaccination series by October 1, 2021. Effective August 31, 2021, new employees will be required to have the COVID-19 vaccine as a part of the new hire process. While the official date of this effort is October 1, St. Andrew’s at New Florence is strongly encouraging all staff to be vaccinated as soon as possible.

“With the rate of COVID-19 cases rising, much in part due to the highly contagious Delta variant, we believe we must act to protect our residents and staff,” said Mary Alice Ryan, President and CEO of St. Andrew’s Resources for Seniors System. “We often receive requests from families and residents asking that only vaccinated staff provide care, and we believe that every person we serve deserves the peace of mind of knowing we have limited their risk as much as possible. We must continue to do everything we can to combat the virus and requiring employees be vaccinated is an important step.”
