As per reports, Apple (AAPL) is requiring unvaccinated corporate employees to test for Covid-19 each time they want to enter an office, a crucial step in tightening its virus protocols while still stopping short of a vaccine mandate. The above requirement will also apply to employees who do not report their vaccination status to Apple. However, vaccinated employees will take rapid tests once per week.
Rules for its retail store employees are slightly different with unvaccinated staff will be asked to test twice per week instead of everyday testing and vaccinated workers will also need to take a rapid test each week. The tests take 15 minutes, and employees will be able to pick up at-home rapid tests from Apple offices and retail stores and will self-report their results via an internal app.
Apple has asked its employees to report their vaccination status by Oct. 24. The company’s latest guidance is that staff should work in the office at least three days per week starting January. The Biden administration has set a Dec. 8 target for federal contractors to require employees to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
