Lightfoot Not Lifting Vaccine Mandate

Mayor Lightfoot isn’t backing down from the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate despite pushback by the Chicago police union. Lightfoot said the deadline for city workers to report their vaccination statue is tonight at 11:59 p.m. Anyone who fails to do so, will be placed in non disciplinary no pay status. The mayor’s comments come after the head of the police union urged officers to defy the deadline and be prepared to be sent home.
