The department sent notices to the 1,357 employees who haven’t stated their vaccination status or intention to apply for an exemption. Notices were also sent to 2,239 people who plan to file an exemption.

So far, two sworn members and one civilian employee have been assigned to stay home after refusing to abide by the notices, which states that the employees must report their status within 48 hours and enter into an agreement to receive two tests per week.
