Earlier this month, Leon County fired 10 workers who did not provide evidence of a vaccine against COVID-19 by the deadline, according to Tallahassee Reports.
According to Leon County Administrator Vince Long, seven hundred workers in the district showed evidence of full protection but 30 others provided accommodation.
“As we have done throughout the epidemic, Leon County will continue to do everything reasonable and prudent to protect our environment, providing a safe and healthy working environment for our employees,” Long wrote in the letter.
