Google has told its employees that the company will be rolling out a policy which will require employees be vaccinated before returning to offices.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai sent an email to all the tech giants employees around the world this morning, informing them of the move.
Pichai said the company is now aiming to have all its workforce back to offices by October 18th, rather than the previous target of September 1st.
“First, anyone coming to work on our campuses will need to be vaccinated. We’re rolling this policy out in the U.S. in the coming weeks and will expand to other regions in the coming months,” he said.
“The implementation will vary according to local conditions and regulations, and will not apply until vaccines are widely available in your area.”
“You’ll get guidance from your local leads about how this will affect you, and we’ll also share more details on an exceptions process for those who cannot be vaccinated for medical or other protected reasons,” he continued.
Facebook also announced yesterday that they will introduce a vaccine requirement in their US offices.
