United Employees and Visitors Must Be Vaccinated to Enter Corporate Offices
On Friday, August 20th, KAMC News was able to obtain a copy of a memo that was sent to employees of all United Family locations.
In this memo, it stated that any and all visitors and employees that wish to enter a regional office or corporate office of the United Family must be fully vaccinated and even show proof of vaccination. On top of this, all visitors and employees also were told they needed to wear face masks in regional and corporate offices regardless of vaccination status.
It must be noted, however, that these requirements are not in effect for stores, just those entering corporate or regional offices. These requirements are also not in effect for a list of specific facilities, such as Llano Logics, RC Taylor and a number of others.
The United Family provided this statement:
As the number of COVID cases began to rise sharply, adding further pressure on our stores and the healthcare systems, The United Family looked at what we could do to support our stores and our communities. We have asked guests to wear a mask while shopping and required team members to do so. We have also asked team members in support offices to be vaccinated or work remotely, to minimize risk, both of spreading disease and the risk of becoming seriously ill. We want to be ready to support our stores and other facilities as they serve our guests.
