Excerpts from Chicago.cbslocal.com:

The City of Evanston announced Tuesday that it has secured memoranda of understanding with its police and firefighter unions with regard to a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy for city staff.

The policy, which goes into effect Monday, Nov. 15, requires all Evanston city employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, or to submit negative test results weekly. 

The City of Evanston is still working with the FOP sergeants and the AFSCME union to reach memoranda of understanding on the vaccine mandate.

To the south, a fight over a COVID-19 vaccination mandate continues between the City of Chicago and some municipal employee unions – particularly Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police. City employees who have not been fully vaccinated have the option of being tested twice weekly for COVID-19 through the end of the year, but all city workers must be fully vaccinated by Dec. 31.

However, enforcement of that vaccination deadline for police officers has been put on hold by a Cook County judge.
