(The Center Square) – An Adams County judge says a health care employer cannot terminate employees who aren’t complying with Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate has health care workers having to prove they are vaccinated or submit to weekly tests. If not, they aren't allowed to work.

Attorney Thomas DeVore filed the lawsuit in Illinois’ Eighth Judicial Circuit on behalf of several employees of the Quincy Medical Group, Quincy Physicians and Surgeons Clinic and Blessing Corporate Services, Inc.

The staff members, the lawsuit says, are “currently facing imminent termination of their employment solely due to not agreeing to be vaccinated or submit to testing for COVID-19.”
