After much discussion, Perth adopts COVID-19 vaccination policy
The town of Perth’s COVID-19 vaccination policy was finally passed at this week’s council meeting, but not without more discussion and questions.
Mayor John Fenik thought the policy had been well discussed over several meetings and that council had agreed on the current proposal at the last committee of the whole meeting.
That plan required all municipal employees and members of council to be fully vaccinated but gave the town’s CAO some discretion in terminating anyone not in compliance.
Councillor Leona Cameron didn’t remember agreeing to that. Councillor Brock McPherson was opposed to the policy, feeling that regular rapid testing would be an acceptable alternative.
In the end the policy passed by a vote of 4 to 2.
