TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tulsa Mayor G.T Bynum says city employees who aren’t vaccinated for the coronavirus won’t receive hazard leave if they contract the illness.
Hazard leave is paid leave that is not counted against sick days or vacation days.
City spokesperson Michelle Brooks said affected employees could use sick days or vacation if they become ill with the virus.
A Tulsa hospital also announced its employees would be required to become vaccinated.
Ascension St. John will require the vaccinations by Nov. 12 and becomes the fourth hospital system in the state with the requirement.
