San Francisco will become one of the first major U.S. cities to mandate full vaccinations for many indoor activities. Friday the city will require that restaurants, bars, and museums check for proof of vaccination for indoor patrons. Not only that, but they are recommending that police officers, firefighters, and sheriff’s deputies who refuse to report their vaccination status be suspended.
San Francisco police officers, firefighters, and sheriff’s office deputies are feeling the pressure to get vaccinated. The city now recommending that eight officers, seven firefighters, and two deputies be suspended without pay for not reporting their vaccination status.
The city says they could eventually lose their jobs.
Nearly 20 police, fire and Sheriff’s Office employees in San Francisco are facing 10-day unpaid suspensions for refusing to disclose their COVID-19 vaccination status by the city’s Aug. 12 deadline.
The employees — including eight in the Police Department, seven in the Fire Department and two in the Sheriff’s Office — received letters from their department heads this week informing them of the potential disciplinary action, the San Francisco Chronicle first reported.
Hundreds more may be notified next week.
