A North Carolina-based hospital system, which serves 4 states, announced at the beginning of this week that it would suspend around 375 healthcare workers.

Just after this announcement, they added that 175 workers were fired due to the COVID 19 vaccine mandates.
According to the Epoch Times,
“Several days ago, Novant Health announced that around 375 of its employees had been suspended and were given five days to comply with the company’s mandate.
“They will have an opportunity to comply over a five-day, unpaid suspension period,” the company’s release said. “If a team member remains non-compliant after this suspension period, he or she will have their employment with Novant Health terminated.”
Since then, “nearly 200 additional team members came into compliance, increasing that rate across Novant Health to over 99 percent,” Novant spokeswoman Megan Rivers told news outlets on Monday. “So fewer than 200 were non-compliant,” it said, confirming that the rest were terminated for not complying with the mandate.
The Winston-Salem-based hospital system includes 15 hospitals, 800 clinics, and hundreds of other facilities across four states, including Virginia, South Carolina, and Georgia. More than 35,000 people are employed by the company.
Rivers’ statement said that those who have submitted an approved religious or medical exemption can still work there. Employees who are exempt from the vaccine have to undergo weekly COVID-19 testing, wear N95 respirator masks, and wear eye protection while working on the premises, according to the hospital system, which didn’t elaborate on how many exemptions were granted.
Workers who have gotten their first of a two-dose vaccine series made by Pfizer or Moderna have until Oct. 15 to get the second dose, according to Novan’s news release last week.”
“In New York state, healthcare workers had until Monday to comply with a statewide mandate directing them to either get the COVID-19 vaccine or not work. Ahead of the order, New York hospital executives had expressed worry that the move would force their systems to shutter certain services, including maternity wards and elective surgery departments.
Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo suspended elective inpatient surgeries and had stopped accepting intensive-care patients from other hospitals over the mandate, spokesman Peter Cutler told Reuters. Curtailing some operations would inconvenience patients and hurt hospital finances, he said, adding that the procedures bring in about $1 million per week.
“We had to make a decision as to where we could temporarily make some changes so that we could ensure other areas of services are as little affected as possible,” Cutler told the outlet. “Financially, it’s a big deal.”
