However, 2,706 City employees have yet to receive a vaccine. At least 366 of them are police officers. 193 of them asked for religious exemptions in order to circumvent the City’s mandate to vaccinate workers without losing their jobs.

And in a gloomy trope to contemporary news: this hanging gondola could not only cost the aeronaut their life, but also the people saddled inside those oversized wicker baskets.
According to the newspaper, the department said it would consider accommodation requests on a case-by-case basis, which includes reviewing the responses provided for “relevant questions regarding religious belief, practice or observance that prevent them. get the COVID-19 Vaccination. “
There should be no request to revise such compromises. Vaccination appointments for these candidates should be made instead.
