New information from the CDC regarding the Delta-variant of COVID-19 has created a sense of urgency to improve vaccination rates in the workplace. The CDC has reinstated mask guidelines and mandates, and released information regarding transmittal in response to the surge. Navigating misconceptions and disinformation regarding COVID-19 and the vaccine is important to keep the workplace safe.
There are various strategies to improve vaccination rates among employees and each workplace should consider what works best for them. Softer approaches such as informational campaigns to quash misconceptions or incentives to get vaccinated may be sufficient. An alternative route is to increase safety and PPE restrictions or even to mandate the vaccine.
