show proof, they’ll need to show:
a government-issued Proof of Vaccination Credential (PVC), either in paper or digital
a government issued photo ID.
3. How will this new requirement affect my contract with YG?
In addition to any applicable contract terms, contractors will need to comply
with the new vaccination requirements in the performance of their contract
4. What happens if I am unable to complete a contract with YG because
my staff are unvaccinated?

contact your contract manager, or fill out the inquiry form.
