93 percent of Danbury school district employees are fully vaccinated. 133 staff members are in the mandatory testing pool. The state mandate for vaccination or testing went into effect 7 weeks ago. The Newstimes reports that staff have been placed on unpaid leave 118 times for failing to turn in their COVID-19 test results on time, with a vast majority for only one day. The Director of Human Resources said in the published report that the failure was because the results didn't come back or they tested too close to the deadline. No Danbury school district employees have been terminated due to the state mandate and none are going through the termination process. Hearst Connecticut Media reports that extended learning and early childhood staff were placed on leave 57 times while lunch staff had 28 leaves.
