Individuals who do not provide proof of vaccination must provide proof of negative COVID-19 test results completed within seven days prior to entry of the JATC premises or submit to COVID-19 testing conducted on-site with negative test results.

Beginning October 25, 2021, in order to enter the premises of the Local 520 JATC, all Apprenticeship Employee’s, Trainee’s, or Visitors who have not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 shall undergo weekly testing for COVID-19.
