Google and Facebook has introduced new policy at their workplaces, No vax, No entry.
The two of Silicon Valley’s biggest companies, have both mandated that staffers have received COVID vaccines before they can return to the office.
Google is requiring employees be vaccinated before coming back to the internet giant’s offices in the U.S. in the next few weeks, and in other countries in the coming months, according to a memo from Alphabet and Google CEO Sundar Pichai sent Wednesday.
“Getting vaccinated is one of the most important ways to keep ourselves and our communities healthy in the months ahead,” Pichai wrote in the company-wide email.
Facebook also said that it’s mandating vaccinations for everyone coming to its facilities.
“As our offices reopen, we will be requiring anyone coming to work at any of our U.S. campuses to be vaccinated,” Lori Goler, Facebook’s VP of people, said in a statement Wednesday. The company will implement the policy based on “local conditions and regulations,” she added, and it will have a process for people who can’t be vaccinated for medical or other reasons.
