COVID-19 Employee Vaccination or Testing Requirements

Ramsey County is committed to preventing the transmission of COVID-19 and creating a safe and healthy workplace for employees. All Ramsey County employees must certify to their vaccination status. Vaccinated employees are asked to provide proof of full vaccination against the COVID-19 virus. Employees who do not provide proof of full vaccination must undergo COVID-19 testing and provide proof of COVID-19 test results on a weekly basis. Any employee who tests positive for COVID-19 regardless of vaccination status must inform their supervisor and isolate at home until they can safely return to a county worksite. Employees hired on or after Nov. 1, 2021 are required to be fully vaccinated and submit proof of vaccination as a condition of their employment with Ramsey County.
