HARRISBURG – Westmoreland County Rep. Eric Nelson is seeking support of his proposal to provide workers who possess natural immunity from COVID-19 to be exempt from employer vaccine mandates. Under the proposal, employees and prospective employees could be exempted from an employer-required COVID-19 vaccine if they can provide documentation showing proof of an infection or lab results showing they possess COVID-19 antibodies. The exemption would last 90 days from the date of testing. Those initially granted an exemption, but are unable to prove continued natural immunity, will have 30 days to seek a religious and/or medical exemption or comply with an employer’s COVID-19 vaccine requirement.
