COVID-19 Vaccination Policy
In the midst of the COVID-19
pandemic, Corbex Inc. wants to assure you of its continued
commitment to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace and that we
are taking additional measures to protect you, your coworkers, and
your families from contracting and spreading COVID-19. Now that
COVID-19 vaccines have been approved by the US Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) and are readily available to the general public
in Corbex Inc.’s geographic location, we are implementing a
mandatory vaccination policy. This policy is based on guidance from
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and NYC
Department of Health and Mental Hygiene order issued on August 24th
, and is designed to comply with all applicable federal, state, and
local laws. Compliance with this policy is a condition of your
continued employment. Please read this policy carefully.
Information About COVID-19 Vaccines
The CDC has promoted the benefits
and safety of approved COVID-19 vaccines. In addition, NYS
Department of Health and CDC recommends that all individuals who can
safely do so get vaccinated against COVID-19.
According to the CDC:
• COVID-19 vaccines currently approved or
in development in the US do not contain the COVID-19 virus and will
not make you sick with COVID-19.
• Getting the COVID-19 vaccine will not
make you test positive for COVID-19.
• COVID-19 vaccinations have been shown to
be highly effective at preventing you from getting sick with
COVID-19 vaccines do not change your DNA.
• COVID-19 vaccinations are an important
tool in helping to stop the pandemic.
• COVID-19 vaccines will be free to you,
though some charges may be billed to your insurance company.

and the vaccine approval process is available and frequently updated

All employees, sub-contractors, consultant
personnel or visitors must use and wear required PPE (Personal
Protective Equipment) on all job-sites, including at a minimum, a
face mask, and may include gloves, a gown, and/or a face shield.
Face masks should be worn so that they
cover the individual’s nose and mouth, and the type of mask should
be consistent with CDC guidance. This means the face mask should
help prevent respiratory droplets from traveling into the air and
onto other people when the person wearing the face mask coughs,
sneezes, talks, or raises their voice. As examples, face masks that
are crocheted or beaded would not be considered sufficient for
purposes of this policy. Masks and other recommended PPE will be
obtained and supplied by Corbex Inc.
