At GMN, the health and safety of our employees and partners is our top priority. To help protect everyone against the spread of the novel coronavirus, GMN held its second on-site COVID-19 vaccine clinic yesterday. Taking place at the Seattle, WA plant, the clinic was open to all GMN employees and their family members.
Since the COVID-19 vaccines became available to the general public in early 2021, finding individual vaccination appointments proved to be time-consuming and challenging for many. To make the process simpler, GMN Seattle’s HR department worked with local medical partners to set up an in-person vaccine clinic at the plant. The clinic gave employees and their families a convenient way to obtain their vaccines without having to spend time and resources finding and traveling to appointments.
GMN recognizes that vaccination is one of the most important tools we have to control the spread of the pandemic and strongly encourages all employees to get vaccinated. At other GMN divisions where on-site clinics aren’t feasible, our HR staff is continuously helping employees find and schedule appointments with local pharmacies and healthcare providers. Today, more than 61% of our employees across all US divisions are fully vaccinated, and many more have already received their first dose of the vaccine.
We also continue to abide by the other preventative measures instated across all GMN divisions, including social distancing markers, daily temperature checks, frequent disinfection of common areas, mandatory mask requirements, sanitizing stations, and more.
GMN is proud to help protect employees and our community against COVID-19. To learn more about our safety protocols and visitation policy during the pandemic, read the latest developments here.
