A wise business decision. And those who don’t get vaccinated, don’t be surprised if you get reduced hours of work.

I wonder if they’ll be made to disclose if they got vaccinated.

Honestly I don't think they will need to, humans have a difficult (99.99% impossible) time keeping things quiet, especially with things like this.  Those who don't will most assuredly speak up amongst others about it, which may or may not result in the actions Oldschool mentioned.

What an amusing joke lol. KI intentionally cutting hours to employees. When I worked there 3 years ago in a management role, I kept getting scheduled people who don't show up 10+ days in a row if that tells you anything

Can they even do that? I don't know the details of how HIPAA works, but that feels like the kind of thing HIPAA would prevent.

Mason City Schools with their student immunization requirements (not yet including COVID-19, obviously) says hello..   Schools can require immunization, and employers can as well.  It's not a HIPAA concern.

Is it even reasonable to think vaccines will be distributed that much to the relevant demographics by then?

Nope.  By the time seasonals start work, mayyybbbeeee they'll be eligible to receive the vaccine.  The company would realistically need to secure the tens of thousands of doses needed across all parks if it wanted to ensure employees had access, which I wouldn't expect to be possible before summer.  There's a reason the company only "strongly encourages" employees to get vaccinated.

I’ve also heard that it’s going to go on for a long time, maybe forever, but I really really hope this article is correct.
