Learning Lab: Vaccine Mandates & COVID Testing for Employees
Sponsored by IPRA’s Administration & Finance Section, this learning lab will consist of an intriguing panel discussion about the state of vaccine mandates and weekly COVID-19 testing for park district employees in Illinois. Featuring agency leaders Craig Talsma (Hoffman Estates), Lisa Sheppard (Glencoe Park District), Amy Rivas (Wheeling Park District), Jan Arnold (Park District of Oak Park), and Laure Kosey (Oak Brook Park District), this event will highlight new vaccine policy for full-time staff at Hoffman Estates and Glencoe Park Districts and discuss the general implications of mandatory vaccinations versus weekly COVID-19 testing, as well as the vaccine inequity that agencies are currently trying to navigate.
