Wheeler Wants All City Employees Vaccinated Or Regularly Tested Against COVID-19

(Portland, OR) -- Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler says that he wants all city employees to either be vaccinated or regularly tested for COVID-19. Wheeler made that announcement to City Council members yesterday. Wheeler says he doesn't have the authority to make the requirement on his own, so he'll be talking with council members, unions, and other groups that would be part of the decision. He says the increasing COVID-19 cases makes it important to take steps to keep the virus out of city offices.
