City employees in Montclair who need to work without a mask should have sticker on their ID badge beginning Monday.
Somewhere around one city councilman, however, said the city is asking excessively.
“Since this story has circulated four or five days prior, I have been getting a progression of disdain messages, saying, ‘I trust you bite the dust of COVID… ,” Councilman Ben Lopez said.
Councilman Lopez said the discussion over COVID policies has gotten revolting, and added that he’s enduring an onslaught for contradicting the new sticker strategy.
“I generally approve of our city HR division inquiring as to whether they are vaccinated,” he said. “Past that, I don’t think we have the authority.”
Last week, the City Manager demanded the arrangement is in accordance with CAL/OSHA rules ordering working environments document workers’ immunization status.
The mayor called attention to that the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention even gives stickers to use as confirmation.
“I simply need to take note of that I do have a sticker on my ID card, since I need to set a model for our employees,” Montclair Mayor Javier John Dutry said at the meeting.
Sunday, LA County announced 2,089 new COVID-19 infections and 4 deaths, proceeding with the spike in new daily cases.
