worker is declining vaccination based on Religious Beliefs; or (2)
the worker is excused from receiving any COVID-19 vaccine due to
Qualifying Medical Reasons. Workers who are exempted from the
vaccination requirements must observe all other infection control

the frequency required by their work site.
