Hesperia City Council unanimously opposes state mandate on COVID-19 vaccines for teachers, students

The Hesperia City Council has passed a resolution that stands in opposition to state-issued COVID-19 mandates for students, teachers and other school employees.

The City Council’s 5-0 vote pushes back against the California Department of Public Health’s (CDPH) announcement in August, which instructs school staff to either show proof of full vaccination or be tested at least once per week.

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Oct. 1 announced plans to add the COVID-19 vaccine to the list of vaccinations required for students to attend school in person.

The vaccine is scheduled to be listed once it receives full approval from the Food and Drug Administration for middle and high school grades.

During Tuesday's meeting, the City Council also sent a message to the Hesperia Unified School District to take a similar stand.

Councilman Bill Holland told the Daily Press on Friday that Hesperia Unified should stop telling everyone they’ll comply with the state because “their hands are tied.”
