On Monday an official recommendation was issued by San Diego County officials stating that all San Diego County employers should require employees to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or weekly testing.
"In an effort to further protect public health, county officials recommend that employers require all of their employees to show proof they have been vaccinated, and if they are unwilling, require their employees to submit to weekly COVID-19 testing," said San Diego County Board of Supervisors Chair Nathan Fletcher.
Fletcher said, "The rise in COVID-19 cases and hospitalization due to the growing prominence of the Delta variant continues to concern San Diego County officials," according to a statement announcing the officials' news conference.
As a result of the recommendation, the county has also increased the number of testing sites as well as vaccination sites.
As of this month, all employees of the County of San Diego are required to be vaccinated.
