Cone Health Extended Its Deadline for Employees to get COVID Vaccine
The Cone Health System, which operates several area hospitals including Alamance Regional in Burlington, has extended its deadline for employees to comply with its COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Cone officials announced last week that the deadline has been extended from October 1 to October 28. The new October 28 deadline is for the second dose of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. Employees who choose the single-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine must still be vaccinated by the original October 1 date. Cone officials have not said how many of its employees have already complied with the mandate.
