Vaccine Reluctant? Get Ready for Mandates

Major US companies are stepping up vaccine requirements in hopes of continuing business as the country faces its latest coronavirus surge, The New York Times reports.

  • 120,000 Tyson Foods workers in offices and poultry plants were told they had to be vaccinated by Nov. 1 to remain employed.
  • 100,000 Microsoft employees were informed proof of vaccination would be required for in-office work.
  • Google issued a similar proclamation for its workers.

But: Walmart, Lyft, and Uber have limited its mandates to white-collar workers but not those on the frontlines.
Next up, cities: New York City rolled out the “first of its kind” mandate yesterday, requiring proof of vaccination for staff and patrons of indoor restaurants, gyms, and performance spaces, according to Gothamist.
