The town of Kap won’t be changing it’s covid-19 vaccination policy. Town Council reviewed the policy on Wednesday night and decided not opt for 100 per cent vaccination amongst the employees. Councillors also heard presentations from two workers who are part of the 15 per cent that are still unvaccinated stating for personal reasons that they’ve chosen not to get a shot. Mayor Dave Plourde says the policy will be reviewed only when a problem arises.

“Fortunate enough, we dealt with many of these issues prior and had a policy in play prior and indication that we would revisit after one month and we did that tonight,” he said. “And we are content with the way it is working so we will continue along those lines.”

Plourde says changing the policy would have affected employees and their families in a negative way.

“We have a really really good work force and happy with the work done by them,” he said. “And it’s not by eliminating people by any stretch of the imagination but  trying to do the right thing and council came together and made a decision that we could live with.”

Administrator Guylain Baril says the current policy has been working well with no issues. He adds all non-vaccinated employees have been cooperating by getting tested for COVID-19 twice week.
