Employees must report their vaccination status by Friday. Unvaccinated workers will get daily COVID tests, the vaccinated get them weekly.
From Mark Gurman's "Apple Will Force Unvaccinated Office Workers to Get Tested Daily" posted Thursday by Bloomberg:
Apple Inc. will begin to force unvaccinated corporate employees to test for Covid-19 each time they want to enter an office, a move that tightens its virus protocols while still stopping short of a vaccine mandate.
The new requirement will also apply to employees who decline to report their vaccination status to Apple, the company told employees this week. Vaccinated staff will be required to take rapid tests once per week.
Apple retail store employees, meanwhile, will have slightly different rules. Unvaccinated staff will be asked to test twice per week instead of each day they come to work. Vaccinated workers will also need to take a rapid test each week.
The company hasn’t been as aggressive as some of its technology peers in pushing workers to get immunized, but upcoming deadlines could change the situation.
My take: Finally.
