GREENVILLE COUNTY, SC (WSPA) — Bon Secours announced Tuesday that it will not require the COVID-19 vaccine for workers in the Greenville market.
On Nov. 30, Bon Secours said it was “moving forward on its previously announced vaccine requirement” after a federal judge ordered a freeze on the federal COVID-19 vaccine requirement for health professionals.
On Tuesday, Bon Secours released the following statement:
Bon Secours continues to monitor and evaluate rapidly evolving information about the CMS COVID-19 vaccine mandate. We continue to strongly recommend to our employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine, but will not need it, in our Greenville market. This decision does not change how we feel about the COVID-19 vaccine – it is safe, highly effective and how we can overcome this pandemic. We are taking this step to ensure we retain safe workforces in our markets to meet the needs of our communities.
Bon Secours said its top priority is to provide quality patient care while committed to improving the health and well-being of the community.
