The City of Toronto, located in Canada, has “paused” certain recreational programs for children following the recent announcement that five staff members at a swimming pool were now working without a valid vaccination status.
“Staff impacted by the recent development will be re-vaccinated prior to resuming duties,” reads a statement released by the City of Toronto on Thursday. “Any affected staff will also be notified by the senior management team.”
However, the city added that the unvaccinated staff will be monitored “throughout the season” to ensure that public safety remains “paramount.”
“The City of Toronto is in its Winter season, and we have suspended scheduled recreation activities for children to allow for the re-vaccination of staff impacted by the recent development. Re-vaccination is necessary for public health to maintain the highest possible levels of immunization,” the statement reads.
