The City of St. Petersburg provides essential public services and is obligated to provide a safe work environment for employees. Accordingly, all new hires are required to provide proof that they are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before beginning employment. The City defines fully vaccinated as, at least two weeks after receipt of the second dose of a two-dose vaccine, or two weeks after receipt of a one-dose vaccine. Candidates that are given a job offer will be required to provide proof to the Human Resources Employment Office at the appropriate time during the post-offer process. Applicants, including those selected for interviews, must not share vaccination information with the hiring department or any City employees. Any applicants selected for hire that are not fully vaccinated will not be eligible to begin working for the City of St. Petersburg.
Reasonable accommodations are available to applicants who are unable to be vaccinated due to ADA-covered disabilities, physician-certified medical conditions which prevent them from receiving vaccinations, or sincerely held religious beliefs. Requests for such accommodations will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis consistent with the law and EEOC guidance.
