LA County Sheriff Villanueva responds to the county’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for employees

-

For quite a long time, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva has clarified his resistance to the county’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for employees.

Villanueva has recently said he doesn’t plan to enforce the mandate, which became real on Oct. 1 after endorsement by the L.A. County Board of Supervisors.

Also, a new Los Angeles Times report observed that Villanueva’s refusal to enforce the mandate reflects in his department’s low vaccination rates. As per the news, around 53% of 16,070 Sheriff’s Department employees, both sworn and civilian, have had something like one portion of a vaccine.

That is low in contrast with the Los Angeles Police Department, which has been upholding the county mandate. Around 74% of the LAPD’s 12,143 employees have had something like one portion of a vaccine, the news announced.

On Saturday, Villanueva joined the media Weekend Morning News show to talk about the new criticisms his department has confronted, terminating back at what he calls “wokism” among the county’s leadership.
