Return to Office

Return to Office Update - September 15, 2021

We are so pleased that 88 percent of our employees are either fully vaccinated or in the middle of the vaccination process. We have confirmed vaccination reports from more than 800 U.S.-based employees. Further, we have identified and are implementing additional required safety protocols for those who are not fully vaccinated upon return to office that will comport with the federal mandate that President Biden recently announced. 

Despite these positive numbers, we are still seeing a high rate of COVID positivity not only in Duval and St. Johns counties, but also around the country. As we have done from the start, we continue to follow CDC guidelines and the recommendation of our medical staff. Based on that data along, with executive management discussion, we have decided to delay official Return to Office to November 1.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding during these challenging times. If you have not already, we strongly encourage you to obtain the vaccine as quickly as possible. In order for you to achieve full vaccination status by November 1, the single dose vaccine or the second dose of a two-part vaccine must be completed no later than October 17. We will be following up directly with those employees who are unvaccinated to discuss the additional safety protocols and health plan cost requirements going forward. We will keep you updated as we continue to monitor the situation.

The TOUR has been conferring closely with our medical consultants, local governments and internal teams to develop and implement building and behavior protocols to mitigate as many safety risks as possible.

As such, we have developed the materials below, which outline the Phase 3 protocols. We strongly recommend all staff read the documents from start-to-finish to better understand our wellness and sanitation guidelines.
