Prioritize assignments so vulnerable teachers can work from home

Resolution

Whereas, COVID-19 is a serious health threat and has already killed over 40,000 people in California alone, and

Whereas, COVID-19 is an airborne illness making enclosed spaces with multiple people in the room highly risky, and

Whereas, Cal/OSHA guidelines do not have an accountability system that is quickly responsive to school safety, and

Whereas, many health conditions prevent people from being able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and;

Whereas, people who are 65 years of age and older and people with certain underlying health conditions are more likely to die if they contract COVID-19;

Therefore, be it resolved, that the CFT support members who are unable to receive a COVID-19 vaccine to receive first priority for assignments that allow them to work from home and/or remotely with the least amount of physical contact with other people; and

Be it finally resolved, that the CFT support members who are 65 and older, and people with certain underlying conditions who are more likely to die if they contract COVID-19, in receiving first priority for assignments that will allow them to work from home and/or remotely with the least amount of physical contact with other people.
