Apple requires employees to have proof of a COVID booster as Omicron spreads, according to reports – Euronews
Apple will require retail and corporate employees to provide proof of a COVID-19 booster shot, The Verge reported on Saturday citing an internal email.
Starting January 24, unvaccinated employees or those who haven’t submitted proof of vaccination will need negative COVID-19 tests to enter Apple workplaces, the report said.
The Verge said it was not immediately clear if the testing requirement applies to both corporate and retail employees.
“Due to waning efficacy of the primary series of COVID-19 vaccines and the emergence of highly transmissible variants such as Omicron, a booster shot is now part of staying up to date with your COVID-19 vaccination to protect against severe disease,” the memo read, according to The Verge.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request from Reuters for comment.
Many companies in the US have been strengthening their COVID-19 rules, mandating vaccination and delaying back-to-office plans as the Omicron variant increases infections across the country.
This week, Facebook parent Meta Platforms mandated COVID-19 booster shots for all workers returning to offices. It also delayed U.S. office reopenings to March 28, from an earlier plan of January 31.
Alphabet Inc’s Google on Friday said it was temporarily mandating weekly COVID-19 tests for people entering its US offices.
A report by The Information said Amazon.com Inc has offered its US warehouse workers $40 (€35) to get a booster shot.

This is the last step before it becomes permanently outdated: it means that Apple will stop providing compatible parts to Apple Stores and Authorized Service Centers.

The mid 2012 13.3-inch MacBook Pro is the last model to feature an integrated CD/DVD drive. It was on sale until October 2016 to provide a more affordable alternative to models with Retina displays, which explains this late obsolescence.

Its time and about to give it up.
