Members of the Mauritius Police Force will need to either get a COVID-19 vaccine or test negative every seven days, or else forego their pay for noncompliance.

The policy is set to begin on Friday 15 October.

A note on “Mandatary Vaccination of Police Officers” just issued by Police headquarters could not be any clearer:

“Non vaccinated Police Officers will be denied access to the workplace with affect from Friday 15.10.2021, except if they produce a duly approved medical exemption or negative PCR test.”

Those who do not comply “will be placed on leave without pay” – the note read, mentioning it was meant “for strict compliance.”

It’s unclear how many of the Mauritian police officers have been vaccinated, but many are reportedly avoiding jabs, citing safety or efficacy concerns.
