Cubs Issue COVID-19 Vaccination Mandate To Non-Gaming Employees

CHICAGO – Add the Chicago Cubs to Major League Baseball teams that have issued a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for their non-playing employees, sources told ESPN on Thursday.

Those employees must be fully vaccinated by October 4, when staff return to their offices during the off-season. A source told ESPN that at least 90% of the team’s employees are already vaccinated.

The organization does not expect any high-profile exits due to the mandate.

On Wednesday, Washington Nationals Vice President Bob Boone informed the team that he would resign rather than comply with the COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all non-uniformed employees, a source confirmed to ESPN.

Meanwhile, the Chicago White Sox issued a mandate in June for staff to be fully vaccinated.

Because they are part of a union, MLB players are exempt from team mandates as they must be bargained collectively. The league and union are currently negotiating a new collective agreement. The current one expires on December 1.
