CEO Jason Studley presented the COVID vaccine mandate policy for adoption. There are some religious or medical exemptions available, which require weekly testing. Employees who do not comply will "go through the regular disciplinary actions," according to Studley. The percentage of employees who remain unvaccinated at this time is between 25% to 30%.

The Board went into executive session and excluded the media and the public for 110 minutes.
