following:

a. Documentation requirements:

If fully vaccinated, shall show proof of vaccination.
i. NOTE: Acceptable proof of vaccination includes a signed record of immunization
from a health care provider or pharmacy, a copy of the COVID-19 Vaccination
Record Card (CDC Form MLS-319813_r, published on September 3, 2020), or a

If unvaccinated and granted a medical or religious exception, shall show negative
COVID-19 test results dated within three calendar days prior to desired entry date. Test

and ensure compliance with federal laws designed to protect contractor employee health
information and personally identifiable information.

2. Contractor employees are subject to daily screening for COVID-19 and may be denied
entry to VA facilities if they fail to pass screening protocols. As part of the screening

a. Contractor employees who work away from VA locations, but who will have direct contact
with VA patients shall self-screen utilizing the COVID-19 Screening Tool, in advance, each
day that they will have direct patient contact and in accordance with their person or persons
who coordinate COVID-19 workplace safety efforts at covered contractor workplaces.
Contractors shall, at all times, adhere to and ensure compliance with federal laws designed to
protect contractor employee health information and personally identifiable information.

3. Contractor must immediately notify their COR or Contracting Officer if contract

performance is jeopardized due to contractor employees being denied entry into VA
Facilities.

4. For indefinite delivery contracts: Contractor agrees to comply with FAR 52.232-99 and VHA
Supplemental Contract Requirements for any task or delivery orders issued prior to this
modification when performance has already commenced.
