Dartmouth College’s remote workers need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to comply with an executive order from the Biden administration.
Other employees of Dartmouth who access Dartmouth facilities were already asked to get fully vaccinated previously unless they have a medical or religious exemption. Students enrolled at Dartmouth were also required to be fully vaccinated unless they had an exemption. The college had extended remote work for employees in September.
The executive order from the Biden administration requires federal contractors to ensure that their employees are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This includes remote workers too.
“All Dartmouth employees, including those who have been approved for fully remote work, must submit proof of vaccination or be approved for a medical or religious exemption by Dec. 8.”Scot Bemis, Chief Human Resources Officer, Dartmouth College
Dartmouth spokeswoman Diana Lawrence on Wednesday said that
“3,854 faculty and staff members have already submitted documentation of their full vaccination status, which contributes to a total current community vaccination rate of 92%.”Diana Lawrence, Dartmouth Spokeswoman
