The San Diego Community College District Board of Trustees announced Friday that employees no longer risk termination for not complying with the district’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate, ABC 10 News reported. The announcement comes after four employees lost their jobs for not getting vaccinated, an issue discussed at a heated Thursday board meeting.

The board issued a press release saying the mandate would remain in place, with religious and medical exemptions, and the board would consider accommodations for those who had been fired or subject to disciplinary action.

“In light of improved public health conditions in San Diego County, the district is reevaluating accommodation options for employees who have been subject to disciplinary action,” the news release noted. “Accommodation options for terminated employees will be reassessed as part of appeal procedures. At this time, the Board of Trustees is not considering any employee terminations related to the COVID-19 vaccination requirement.”
