BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – After the FDA announced the approval of the Pfizer vaccine, the governor’s office is now working on adding guidelines for state employees.

Additional guidelines include regular mandatory testing and other requirements for unvaccinated state employees, according to a spokesperson from the governor’s office.

“We strongly encourage our employees to get their vaccines before these new requirements go into place so that they can protect themselves, their coworkers and the people they serve,” said Communications Director Shauna Sanford.
