As more of the COVID-19 vaccines become available, public health experts comment on whether or not businesses can require employees to get it.

Greene County Public Health Director Becky Wolf says a determining factor for a business to require employees to get the vaccine could be from the employer and what their needs are.

“As far as can they require it? I really think that’s something that they need to discuss with their legal counsel and their HR (human resources) Department, and really have that in place for what their decision would be.”  

However, Wolf notes the best course of action would be for everyone to voluntarily get the vaccine.
