Louisville MSD Mandatory COVID-19 vaccination or weekly testing Policy and Procedures
Notice to all consultants, contractors, suppliers, and vendors providing services or performing work in MSD owned, leased or operated facilities.
The Board of the Louisville and Jefferson County Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD), on November 15, 2021, in the interest of providing and maintaining a safe and healthy workplace for its employees, adopted a policy of mandatory vaccination or weekly testing that applies to any large infectious disease outbreak including the current COVID pandemic.
Beginning February 7, 2022, all persons providing services or performing work inside MSD facilities will be required to be vaccinated or undergo weekly COVID-19 testing. MSD’s Policy and Procedures apply to MSD employees, officers and board members along with contractors, suppliers, vendors and consultants (Non-MSD Employees) who provide services or perform work inside our facilities.
Effective February 7, 2022, all employees of consultants, contractors, suppliers, and vendors working at an MSD Facility are required to (1) be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and submit documentation to that effect to their employer or submit proof of a weekly negative COVID-19 test to their employer; and (2) their employer (person or entity having the contract with MSD) must submit an attestation form to MSD certifying compliance with the attached Policy and Procedures. Any Non-MSD Employee not in compliance with these Procedures will not be permitted to work inside any MSD Facility.
Completed attestation forms for consultants, contractors, suppliers, and vendors must be submitted to MSD Human Resources at HumanResources@louisvillemsd.org each Wednesday by 5:00 p.m. Contractors, consultants, suppliers and vendors working exclusively outdoors and do not enter any MSD buildings are exempt from this requirement. This exemption does not apply if the contractors, consultants, suppliers or vendors enter an MSD building.
For example, if non-MSD employee must attend a meeting inside an MSD facility even though their work occurs primarily outdoors, they must comply with the Mandatory Vaccination/Testing Policy and these Procedures.
A consultant, contractor, supplier or vendor who fails to follow these procedures may be assessed a penalty up to 5% of the value of the contract/agreement. MSD may consider mitigating circumstances to reduce the penalty. Any questions related to this policy should be directed to MSD Human Resources Director Lynne Fleming at HumanResources@louisvillemsd.org or 502-873-6948.
