Please be sure to visit our Coronavirus Resource Center for the most up-to-date information to keep your club informed on COVID-19.

COVID-19 separated us. Vaccines are bringing us together. NCA’s new campaign, Stick it to COVID-19: Support the vaccine, provides information on how clubs can protect employees and members and commit to a safe club environment. NCA also provides the Vaccine Finder tool that helps identify local vaccine distribution locations. Learn more.

Legislative Update

The United States recently administered its 200 millionth vaccination, and to commemorate the occasion, President Biden took the opportunity to urge employers across the nation to pay their employees to take the time off needed to get the COVID-19 vaccine. As you know, this can be done through the American Rescue Plan for employers with under 500 employees and they receive a tax credit for offering this time away from work to be vaccinated. This is a voluntary benefit, and President Biden highly encouraged those employers who can take advantage of this plan, to do so.

  • For employers that do choose to offer this benefit, the Internal Revenue Service has published guidance found here for employers on how they may claim these tax credits, how they are calculated, and what supporting documentation is needed.
  • As vaccinations are becoming more widely available to those who wish them, many employers are beginning to plan for post-pandemic return to work, including the role vaccinations may play in reopening and bringing employees back into the workplace.
