Ask The Mayor: West Lafayette's John Dennis On Vaccine Policies For City Employees


This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor: in West Lafayette, a new policy ensures vaccinated city employees will be paid for COVID-19 sick days if they’re diagnosed with COVID or required to quarantine after exposure – but unvaccinated employees will be required to pull from their existing leave. Will this incentivize people to receive the vaccine?

In our talk with West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis, we’ll discuss a PSA released last week featuring public officials and healthcare workers with a plea to get vaccinated, wear masks, and remain aware of the impact rising cases have on local hospitals. How do differing opinions from local leaders impact the final message?

Plus, the city awaits the return of Purdue football in full this weekend.
