Washington state’s ferry service is facing a potential slow down over Labour Day weekend when crew members are expected to stage “sickouts” in response to the state’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Sickouts are expected on all ferry routes by ferry workers who are opposed to the COVID-19 vaccine mandate requiring state employees, health care employees and K-12 employees to be fully vaccinated by Oct. 18. In response to the potential protest, the state ferry system has shut down ferry reservations for the weekend.
