October 7, 2022 Update on City Worker Vaccine Requirement

Mayor Carter announced the end of the City’s COVID-19 Vaccine Policy effective October 7, 2022. 

  • If you were granted a reasonable accommodation related to medical or religious exemption from the Vaccine Policy, you will no longer be required to comply with the accommodation.   

  • Reimbursement for the COVID-19 testing requirement has been discontinued.  

  • You can continue to use Emergency Pandemic Leave (EPL) if you need to get vaccinated during work hours through December 31, 2022. 

We are continuing to follow public health official guidance, and understand the spread of COVID-19 has created an array of employee questions including concerns of exposure to the coronavirus, the practice of social distancing, and adapting to changing family circumstances caused by school closures, sickness, or isolation of a family member.   

This page is meant to answer common questions related to employment and may not apply to all cases. If you have questions not addressed here or you have specific questions, please email HRQuestions@ci.stpaul.mn.us with your specific issue to be addressed by a member of the HR COVID‐19 Task Force. This page is fluid and additional information will be added as it becomes available.
