Covid Lets Up — But We’re Not Out of the Woods Yet
COVID-19 cases and deaths are finally trending downward overall in the U.S. from their peak a few weeks ago. In many places, however, active cases and hospitalizations remain very high, driven by the aggressiveness of the Delta variant among unvaccinated people.
In fact, a newly released study of 600,000 Covid cases from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed that unvaccinated people are 11 times more likely to die from Covid than those who have had the vaccine. The study also found that unvaccinated people are 10 times more likely to be hospitalized with the disease.
Earn a $200 Award for Being Vaccinated
Your CoolSys leadership team strongly urges you to get vaccinated, if you haven’t already done so. (Read CoolSys President and CEO Adam Coffey’s message about pending vaccine mandates or watch his video.) The CDC has information about the Covid vaccine and where to get vaccinated. You can also reach out to your primary care physician and/or watch the news and social media for announcements about vaccine clinics at local hospitals and in your community.
To say thank you for getting vaccinated, CoolSys will give you $200 when you present proof of vaccination from now to the end of 2021. Here’s what you need to do:
- After you’ve been fully vaccinated (both shots of a two-shot vaccine or one shot of a single-shot vaccine), log in to mycoolsysbenefits.com. Use the “Single Sign-On” button to log in with your CoolSys email address and password.
- Click on “Claim your incentive.”
- Select the name of the vaccine you received, enter the date(s) you received it, upload a photo of your vaccine record card then click “Submit.”
- You will see a $200 Vaccine Incentive on your paycheck within 30days.
If you already participated in the Vaccine Incentive Program, CoolSys will increase your cash award to match the current $200 award. Watch for more information on how that program will roll out.
Covid Safety Is Still a Priority
Whether or not you have been vaccinated, please continue to follow Covid safety practices: wear a mask (even if you are vaccinated, if you live in an area with a high number of cases), practice social distancing, wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer, and avoid crowded indoor environments.
Please be particularly mindful of your customers’ preferences regarding masks, social distancing and so forth. If a customer asks you to wear a mask, do so without hesitation, regardless of any city or state policies to the contrary.
Unfortunately, Covid is not done with us yet. So please continue to do your part to reduce the threat of the disease, especially to those who are particularly vulnerable or who cannot be vaccinated. We’re proud of you, Team CoolSys, and we appreciate what you do every day to serve our customers with courtesy and professionalism!
