Following a lengthy closed session discussion at a special Huntsville Council meeting called on October 1, 2021, council emerged with a COVID vaccination status policy for all municipal employees.
The resolution, which alluded to an amended confidential report, states that all unvaccinated municipal employees will be required to undergo COVID testing every 48 hours or once per day if they are in direct contact with the public.
It also states the testing will be done at their expense unless the municipality is able to secure free testing for its staff.
Two councillors voted against the resolutions because according to a source the motion did not go far enough.
Councillors Tim Withey and Bob Stone voted against it.
