Beginning March 24th, 2023 Great Basin Institute no longer requires COVID-19 vaccination of our program participants, staff or volunteers. GBI still encourages all employees to maintain a current vaccination status with boosters as recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
“Many people in the United States have some protection, or immunity, against COVID-19 due to vaccination, previous infection, or both. This immunity, combined with the availability of tests and treatments, has greatly reduced the risk of severe illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19 for many people.”
As GBI continues serving our partners and administering to their unique jurisdictional requirements, the Institute utilizes resources published by the CDC and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as well as COVID-19 community-level stipulations.
We recognize people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised have different recommendations for COVID-19 vaccines. GBI encourages an informed approach to ensuring the health and safety of ourselves, our workplaces, and our communities. COVID-19 vaccine efficacy, safety, and the benefits of being vaccinated, are available HERE.
We encourage you to explore GBI’s upcoming and current employment opportunities HERE, and reach out to the appropriate GBI staff if you have questions or concerns regarding the application process or eligibility standards. https://www.thegreatbasininstitute.org/our-staff/
