U.S. Hunter Jumper Association Recognized as a Silver COVID Stops Here Workplace

Lexington, Kentucky—Oct. 13, 2021—Today, the U.S. Hunter Jumper Association has been recognized as a Silver COVID Stops Here workplace for achieving an 80% vaccination rate.

The COVID Stops Here campaign recognizes Kentucky 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 Kentuckians 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 thrilled to be recognized as a Silver COVID STOPS HERE workplace,” said Kevin Price, executive director of the USHJA. “We strive to provide a workplace for our employees that upholds our staff values of honesty, ownership, respect, stewardship and empowerment. I’m incredibly proud of our team for upholding these values and keeping each other and our community safe.”

The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce 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 Kentucky’s pathway to recovery. The U.S. Hunter Jumper Association is helping set the bar for vaccination in Kentucky by achieving Silver COVID Stops Here status — meaning at least 80% 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 Kentucky Chamber President and CEO Ashli Watts. “Employers are playing a very important as we work to encourage vaccination in Kentucky. In order to finally put this virus behind us, we need Kentuckians to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Together we can stop this virus, let’s make sure that COVID stops here!”
