Apple no longer mandates employees to wear masks

Original link:


According to an internal email from the COVID-19 response team obtained by The Verge, Apple is waiving the mask mandate for corporate employees “in most places.” “If you feel more comfortable doing this, please do not hesitate to continue wearing a mask,” the email said. “Also, please respect everyone’s decision to wear a mask or not.”

The move comes amid a surge in the highly transmissible BA.5 variant of COVID-19. Earlier this week, BART, the Bay Area transit system, resumed its mask mandate.

Apple began asking some employees to return to the office in April, but did not implement its full hybrid model, which requires all employees to work in person three days a week.

Apple team:

We are writing this letter to share an update to our current protocol. Given the current situation, face coverings will no longer be required in most locations. As always, please check Welcome Forward regularly for specific requirements in your area, including those from your local health department, or any locations you may visit.

We recognize that everyone’s personal circumstances are different. If you feel more comfortable doing this, don’t hesitate to continue wearing a mask. Also, please respect everyone’s decision to wear a mask or not.

Thank you for all you are doing to support Apple’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

COVID-19 Response Team
