City Manager's Message Sept. 30: Covid-19 testing update, new deadline

Posted on September 30, 2021 at 3:30 PM by Don Mann

Sept. 30, 2021 — I wanted to provide you with an update on the Covid-19 Testing Certification process. I’d like to thank those employees for submitting their responses by last Friday’s deadline. As of that time, we received 1,866 completed responses out of an active employee population of 2,128. That is approximately an 89% response rate, which is amazing! I am also pleased to share that a significant portion of our workforce is vaccinated. Of the 1,866 submissions, 1553 provided proof of vaccination.

There are still approximately 230 employees who have yet to submit their complete response. Therefore, we are reopening the form until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 4, 2021. If you have not already done so, please notify your supervisor and submit your completed response and any supporting documentation before Oct. 4 deadline. Although we’ve had a great response rate, testing plans can’t be finalized until all employees respond.

The link to the online HIPAA-secure portal is at:

If you need proof of vaccination and received your doses in Virginia, you can access it electronically from the Virginia Department of Health’s Vaccination Portal:

Information on the testing program will be provided next week.

Thank you again for your cooperation.

— Mary
