Update to Vaccine Mandate for California Health Care Workers

Update to Vaccine Mandate for California Health Care Workers

加州衛生保健工作者的疫苗規定更新




In early August, California's Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued a mandate for health care workers to be vaccinated by Sept. 30. Local government agencies within California, like the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health, passed similar orders that expanded the CDPH mandate to, for example, nonmedical in-home healthcare workers.

8月初,加州公共衛生部 (CDPH) 發布了一項規定,要求醫護人員在9月30日之前接種疫苗。加州的地方政府機構,如洛杉磯縣公共衛生部,通過了類似的規定,擴大了疫苗接種範圍,如CDPH 要求非醫療家庭醫療保健工作者。


Then, on Sept. 28, the CDPH expanded its mandate when it issued a new vaccine requirement, adding adult care facilities and direct care workers.

然而,在9月28日,CDPH 在發布新的疫苗要求時擴大了其規定範圍,增加了成人護理機構和直接護理人員。


Under its new mandate, the CDPH now requires covered workers to be fully vaccinated by Nov. 30.

根據其新規定,CDPH現在要求涵蓋在規定內的工作人員在11月30日之前完全接種疫苗。


Covered Workers

涵蓋的工作人員


The following workers are covered by the order:

該規定涵蓋以下工作人員:


All workers who provide services or work in adult and senior care facilities are licensed by the California Department of Social Services.

All waiver personal care services (WPCS) providers, as defined by the California Department of Health Care Services, and in-home supportive services (IHSS) providers, as defined by the California Department of Social Services, except for those workers who only provide services to a recipient with whom they live or who are a family member of the recipient for whom they provide services.

加州衛生保健服務部定義的所有豁免個人護理服務 (WPCS) 提供者和加州社會服務部定義的家庭支持服務 (IHSS) 提供者,但僅提供服務的員工除外與他們住在一起的受顧者,或他們為其提供服務的受顧者的家庭成員。

Exemptions

豁免


The exceptions for those who work in-home, WPCS, and hospice, as detailed above, only apply if the workers provide services to a single household. If the workers provide services across multiple households, the exceptions do not apply, and the worker must comply with the order.

上文詳述的在家工作、WPCS 和臨終關懷服務人員除外,但僅適用於員工為單個家庭提供服務的情況。如果員工為多個家庭提供服務,則例外情況不適用,員工必須遵守規定。


Workers may also be exempt from the vaccination requirements due to closely held religious beliefs or qualifying medical reasons. Workers who believe they are covered by either of these exemptions must provide their employer with a declination form signed by the worker.

因為虔誠的宗教信仰或符合條件的醫療原因,員工也可以免除接種疫苗要求。認為自己符合其中任何一項豁免的員工,必須向其雇主提交一份由員工簽署的拒絕表格。


Requirements for Unvaccinated Workers

對未接種疫苗員工的要求


If a worker is exempted from the vaccination requirements, either due to religious beliefs or qualifying medical reasons, the worker must comply with the following requirements:

如果員工因宗教信仰或符合條件的醫療原因免除疫苗接種要求,則該必須遵守以下要求:


Test for COVID-19 with either PCR or antigen test once weekly.

每週一次通過PCR或抗原檢測來檢測新冠肺炎。


Wear a surgical mask or higher-level respirator, such as an N95 filtering facepiece respirator, at all times while in the facility or at home.

在機構或家中,始終佩戴醫用口罩或更高級別的呼吸器,例如N95過濾式面罩呼吸器。


Record-Keeping

保存紀錄


Employers of covered workers will be required to maintain records of workers' vaccination or exemption status. Employers must also keep records regarding worker testing for those employees who are exempt from vaccination. These records must be kept confidential under applicable privacy laws and regulations.

涵蓋在規定內員工的雇主將被要求保存員工疫苗接種或豁免狀態的記錄。雇主還必須為那些免於接種疫苗的員工保存員工檢測記錄。根據適用的隱私法律和法規,這些記錄必須保密。
