Lake Washington Institute of Technology Fully Vaccinated Campus Policy

Pursuant to the Higher Education Proclamation 20-12.5 issued by Governor Jay Inslee on August 27, 2021, Lake Washington Institute of Technology will operate as a Fully Vaccinated Campus during the period of time the proclamation remains in effect.

LWTech will require all staff (including student employees), faculty, volunteers, and contractors/vendors who participate in operations or other activities in person to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, subject to any medical exemptions required by law and any religious exemptions provided, as a qualification of fitness for continued employment. Employees who refuse will be subject to non-disciplinary dismissal from employment for failing to meet the qualifications of the job. The process for Academic and Classified employees are set forth in their respective bargaining agreements.

For purposes of this policy, a person is fully vaccinated against COVID-19 two weeks after they have received the second dose in a two-dose series of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized for emergency use by the FDA (e.g., Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) or two weeks after they have received a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine authorized for emergency use by the FDA (e.g., Johnson & Johnson (J&J)/Janssen).

For purposes of this policy, LWTech considers a person fully vaccinated against COVID-19 two weeks after they have received all recommended doses of a COVID-19 vaccine that is listed for emergency use by the World Health Organization (WHO).
