COVID-19 Vaccination Policy
No Barriers has a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy for all employees, including
contract staff who have reason to be in contact with program participants. Our goal is to
protect the health and safety of our staff and participants. We do allow staff to apply for
an exemption to this vaccination policy, which may be granted for medical
contraindications or sincerely held religious beliefs. However, because of the nature of
most program positions it is likely that approval of an exemption will cause an undue
hardship for No Barriers.
