WENATCHEE — A Douglas County Superior Court judge ruled on Friday to dismiss a lawsuit filed by more than 100 former employees who lost their jobs when Confluence Health enforced the state’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

In October 2021, Confluence Health — the region’s largest health care system — enforced the state’s vaccine mandate for healthcare workers, resulting in 23 resignations, 138 rejected exempted applications and 229 approved exemption applications.
