Apple plans to drop its mask requirement at many U.S. retail stores starting on Friday, reports Bloomberg. The policy was announced in an internal memo to Apple employees.

“After careful review, the Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS) team, along with leadership, have determined it’s safe to update our guidance on masks for customers in your store,” according to the memo. “The positive trends in vaccinations, testing, and case counts for your area have made this change possible.”

The new policy will apply to customers regardless of vaccination status. Notably, employees will still have to wear masks.

“Team members have longer interactions in store and are in close proximity throughout the day,” according to the memo.

The change will take place at over 100 of the company's 270 stores before gradually expanding to additional locations.

“The health and safety of our teams and customers remains our highest priority,” Apple told staff. “We will continue to monitor local guidance and Covid data in your area throughout the holiday season, and make adjustments as needed.”
