(WFSB) – Last Monday was the deadline for state workers to either show proof of vaccination or to agree to weekly COVID testing in order to continue their employment.
As of Tuesday, about 1,200 workers, or 4 percent of all state employees, had yet to comply. Efforts have been underway to track down each employee in that group.
The state’s Chief Operating Officer Josh Geballe joins CT ’21 this weekend to give an update on the numbers and what happens next.
Also joining CT ’21 this weekend is Rob Baril, president of the SEIU 1199 Northeast, which is a union that represents state workers, as well as Jill Alsgaard, an ICU nurse with UConn Health and a member of University Professionals AFT Local 3837.
