We’ve been getting several questions about vaccination requirements lately, and while we can’t answer much with any firm conclusion, we thought that we should share where we’re at:
Summit cares about our team’s health and safety above all else. It’s why we require new planters to undergo a pre-season fitness conditioning program, try to ensure that every meal you eat in camp is nutritious as well as delicious, and have non-negotiable safety protocols from truck to tent. We also trust you to make health and safety decisions that are right for yourself and your body, like taking time off to heal an injury or seeking support for mental health maintenance. There are many various and impactful elements that go into a person’s choice regarding vaccination, and that choice is yours and yours alone.
At this point, Summit does not have any policy regarding vaccination requirements for our staff. Should regulations or restrictions that apply to our sector be released, we will respect and follow those. Updates will be provided as we receive them, and staff with questions about vaccine updates are encouraged to reach out to Human Resources. There are many different elements to our operations that may involve vaccination restrictions, from transportation regulations to regional health orders. This is a highly complex matter, and we ask for understanding and patience while we learn how to manage the many moving parts to this big picture.
Thank you and stay safe,
The Summit Team
We are working hard with government agencies, clients, communities, managers and planters to ensure we can all go to work safely this season. We will post updates here regularly to keep you informed.
