Worker COVID-19 vaccine mandate suspended in City of Coquitlam

The City of Coquitlam decided to suspend their staff COVID-19 vaccination mandate policy as the province moved to lift the province wide vaccine passport mandate on April 8.

The City of Richmond didn’t elaborate if any of the city staff were placed on unpaid leave or terminated because of the vaccine mandate when it was active. Details about if the COVID-19 vaccine policy effected members of council were absent in the reply back to BC Rise in our media inquiry.

BC Rise learned in through media inquires other Metro Vancouver area municipalities have decided to suspend their COVID-19 vaccine mandates for workers like Vancouver and Richmond but Burnaby, Delta, North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Port Moody, Surrey, Langley and Port Coquitlam did not respond by the time of publication.

Last week we learned of some other cities in British Columbia that also lifted their workers vaccine mandate such as Victoria and Nanaimo on the Island and Kamloops in the Thompson Okanagan.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of BC Rise's fact-based, independent reporting.

Unlike the mainstream media, BC Rise isn’t getting a government bailout and fully independent. Instead, we depend on friendly support of Canadians like you.

A media outlet cannot remain neutral and fair if they have special beneficiaries or government handouts.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a donation to BC Rise today. Thank you so much.
