it's not a sunnyvale location. all 56 employees have filled out this county form disclosing if they've been vaccinated. we were ready to fill out this form. it was easy because our staff most of them have been vaccinated. so we thought of this for me. no problem. xanatos assistant store manager has the forms ready in case the county checks by june 1st as part of the county health order, officials are requiring businesses and government enemies to track and have on hand. the vaccination status of all employees. the reason workplace safety rules vary, depending on who's received the shot. i think it's important for us to know who's been vaccinated. who hasn't those not wanting to share if they've been vaccinated? don't have to. they'll be treated as though they haven't businesses that don't comply could face of what the county is doing. i think it is unfair. at this point, catherine summers is with the silicon valley chamber coalition and questions the mandate. the coalition sent out this letter last week asking
11:02 pm
the county to extend its deadline of june 15th to have more time to review it. no other counties air you know, having to go through this next step, and it's kind of you ask yourself why so far they haven't received a receipt. wants no one from county public health was available to comment on a holiday regarding the june 1st deadline, the counties website does say so long as the business is making appropriate good faith efforts, the business will be considered in compliance with the requirement. and a business expert. i spoke to from san jose state tonight tells me the mandate does raise concerns over privacy and enforcement, and he would not be surprised if it has met with legal challenges. and as a some people are saying that this could trigger possibly a growing backlash among employers who say that this mandate will make them feel like vaccination. police. what are you hearing about that? yeah, that business coalition. i spoke to alluded to concerns about owners having asked about
