An applicant seeking such an exemption should contact Human Resources to initiate that process no later than two (2) business days after receiving a conditional offer of employment. All information regarding vaccination status will be maintained in confidence in accordance with applicable law. Our policies on vaccination requirements and related COVID-19 protocols are subject to change based on changes in the law and applicable regulations, state and federal guidance, and trends within North Carolina and our local communities.
