AMU recognized by Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry as part of COVID Stops Here

Andrews McMeel Universal in Kansas City has been recognized as a Gold COVID Stops Here workplace for achieving a 90% vaccination rate.

The COVID Stops Here campaign recognizes Missouri workplaces that have achieved widespread vaccination against COVID-19. Organizations that have achieved at least a 70% vaccination rate are eligible to receive a designation.

It is critical that Missourians work together to stop the spread of coronavirus — including the dangerous new Delta variant. Vaccination is the best way to stop COVID-19.

“We are so proud of our associates and their commitment and leadership to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in Kansas City. From the start of the pandemic, this team has embraced our values of care and trust to support the health and safety of our work environment. We appreciate being recognized by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and hope this reinforces our message to all current and future associates that the health and safety of our associates is a top priority,” said Susan Johnson, Chief People & Communications Officer.

The Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry developed the COVID Stops Here campaign as a way to celebrate workplaces that are leading the fight to stop COVID-19 — and to encourage more organizations to join their ranks.

“The COVID-19 vaccine is Missouri’s pathway to recovery. Andrews McMeel Universal is helping set the bar for vaccination in Missouri by achieving Gold COVID Stops Here status — meaning at least 90% of their employees are now vaccinated against COVID-19. This is a great achievement and we thank them for helping our state stop this dangerous virus,” said Daniel P. Mehan, president and CEO of the Missouri Chamber. “Employers are playing a very important as we work to encourage vaccination in Missouri. In order to finally put this virus behind us, we need Missourians to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Together we can stop this virus, let’s make sure that COVID stops here!”
