DRC Statement on Ensuring Safe Work Environments

The Dallas Regional Chamber has been at the forefront of efforts to encourage more North Texans to get vaccinated to protect themselves, their families, and our neighbors. From a business perspective, a full economic recovery can only happen if more people get vaccinated so that our communities stay healthy, and businesses can stay open.

Businesses have a responsibility to protect the health and safety of all employees in the workplace. The DRC supports the choice of each individual employer to do what is best for their company, whether that includes a vaccine mandate with reasonable exceptions, or giving the option of regular testing for those not vaccinated to ensure businesses can operate safely and effectively.
