Our COVID-19 Response
In 2020, we hired over 200 extra nurses and administrative support staff to support our on-site efforts to screen, test and isolate team members with COVID-19 symptoms and manage their cases. In 2021, we hired our first Chief Medical Officer. Also, we opened pilot health centers at 7 locations for team members and their families.
In August 2021, we required team members at U.S. facilities to be fully vaccinated by November 1, 2021. To achieve a fully vaccinated workforce, we offered expert resources and education. We also held over 200 on-site vaccination clinics and compensated team members for getting vaccinated. As a token of gratitude, we provided “thank you” bonuses to team members who got vaccinated.
- We continue to educate and encourage team members to get vaccinated for COVID-19 and stay up-to-date on boosters, however we no longer require team members to be vaccinated.
