Apple Stores to Drop Mask Requirement for Vaccinated Customers [Report]

Apple is planning to drop the mask requirement at Apple Stores for vaccinated customers, according to a new report from Bloomberg.

The technology giant has begun informing retail employees of the impending change in impacted markets, according to people with knowledge of the matter, who declined to be identified discussing policy changes that haven’t been announced. The change will go into effect as early as Tuesday, and employees have been told that they won’t be required to ask customers for verification of vaccination.

Despite the change for customers, Apple still wants its retail employees to wear masks. However, a recent memo sent to corporate employees says that face covering requirements will be dropped at some of the company's U.S. offices.

“Given the progress being made in response to Covid-19 in the U.S., we wanted to let you know that a number of sites are now moving to the next phase of resumption and will begin to operate under Phase 3 onsite protocol,” according to the memo. “In Phase 3, where allowed, Apple protocols are being updated to permit optional masking for vaccinated individuals. Physical distancing requirements are also being relaxed in this phase.”

The CDC ended indoor mask requirements for fully vaccinated individuals a month ago.
