In response to FAQs by summer program providers this May, the federal government provided further guidance to employers regarding vaccination requirements.

Federal Equal Employment Opportunity “laws do not prevent an employer from requiring all employees physically entering the workplace to be vaccinated for COVID-19, so long as employers comply with the reasonable accommodation provisions of the ADA and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other EEO considerations.”

State of Connecticut Requirements

At the State level Governor Lamont has issued Executive Order 13D mandating vaccines for licensed programs:

The EO requiring vaccinations applies to all licensed child care centers, group child care homes, family child care homes and licensed youth camps operating during the school year. An FAQ document is expected in the near future.  However, the EO does indicate that acceptable proof of vaccination will be a CDC COVID-19 vaccination record card, photo of vaccine record card, documentation from a health care provider, electronic health care record or state immunization information record.  Personal attestation of vaccination will not be accepted.
