Apple staff will have to get Covid-19 vaccine or test frequently

Apple Inc. will begin mandating frequent Covid-19 testing for U.S. employees who aren’t vaccinated, while letting inoculated workers get checked less often.

The push, which begins next month, will apply to U.S. offices and stores, the company told employees at a meeting Friday.

Apple said it’s assessing its policies on a country-by-country basis, but Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook urged workers to get the vaccine.

"Apple announces mandatory Covid-19 vaccination or frequent testing for employees"

Not really mandatory if there is that "or" option.

Correct. Especially if the company is providing the testing kits.

I get tested twice a week. Every Monday and Friday.

Our company is also considering a policy where you have to be vaccinated. I've been fully vaccinated though.

I've been tested once and wouldn't ever want to go through it again unless absolutely necessary.
