Stay Covid Safe During the Holidays
The holidays include good cheer and gatherings with family and friends. We hope you’ll enjoy the season, and we want to encourage you to keep yourselves and your loved ones as safe from COVID-19 as possible.
With the recent discovery of the Omicron variant, it’s clear that Covid is still very much with us and requires our continued attention to Covid safety precautions. Just like the Delta variant, even people who are vaccinated can spread the Omicron variant.
The best way to prevent COVID 19 is to get vaccinated
We strongly encourage employees to get vaccinated. Vaccines have proven to be safe and effective, and they are still the best way to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your customers from the virus. Also, many of our customers will likely continue to require that only vaccinated employees provide services at their sites. Getting vaccinated matters for multiple reasons! If you have not yet been vaccinated, please find a vaccine location near you soon and get vaccinated.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also strongly recommends a booster shot for everyone age 16 and older. You should get the booster at least six months after receiving your second dose of your main Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or at least two months after receiving your single-dose shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Also Ending December 31: Temporary Paid Supplemental Sick Leave
Please be aware that the CoolSys Temporary Paid Supplemental Sick Leave Program is ending as of 12/31/21. This temporary program was put into place at the beginning of the pandemic before we understood the best measures to take to prevent COVID 19, and before vaccines were readily available. If you are directly exposed to COVID 19, test positive, or otherwise need to quarantine, your accrued and unused vacation or sick leave (if applicable) may be used to cover your pay during your time away, however, Temporary Paid Supplemental Sick Leave will no longer be available.
We wish you a joyous and healthy holiday season! Thank you for all you do, every day!
