Hi Team SB,
We received confirmation with regards to the Vaccination Incentive Payment that OPWDD requested from the federal government. It states that staff who have been fully vaccinated with the Moderna, Pfizer or J & J vaccine by January 14, 2022 will receive $500 for full time – over 30 hours/week; $250 – 20-29 hours/week; and $125 – 19 or less hours/week.
To be eligible for the incentive, you need to bring proof of your vaccination (s) to Frieda Grimes. We will be giving staff the incentive once we receive payment from the state. Please know we will continue to inform you as we receive more details.
Also, as our positive COVID cases are increasing, we must continue to be vigilant with our COVID protocols and procedures to ensure the safety of everyone at Saratoga Bridges!
I know that we are all working under very stressful circumstances, but by working together, we will get through this. I truly thank you for your commitment to our individuals, their families and each other.
