In order to work from home employees of Google employee must be fully vaccinated against the Covid-19.

“We’re not requiring vaccinations as an essential requirement for employment to US employees at the present moment. We’re still implementing our COVID-19 vaccination policy, which requires vaccinations or approved accommodations for users who visit our websites, as it’s among the most crucial ways to keep our staff safe and ensure that we ensure that our services are running smoothly,” Google spokesperson Lora Lee Erickson told in a statement made to The Verge. She also said that all employees working within Google’s Santa Clara County facilities will be required to wear masks at the office.

CNBC has also released details of a memo that was sent to employees from David Radcliffe, Google’s VP of workplace and real estate services. The note states it is the case that “unvaccinated employees who have been approved to access offices will require additional procedures that include testing and wearing masks”. His note further stated that facilities like fitness centers as well as pantries, shuttle services and “all informal areas” will soon be open.

In the month of December Google issued a letter to employees informing them that those who were discovered in violation of vaccination regulations would eventually be dismissed from the company. Google had set an 18 January deadline for employees to comply with the vaccine rules. Google has stated that employees who fail to adhere with the deadline is placed under “paid administrative leave” for 30 days, which will be followed with “unpaid personal time off” for up to six months before end of.

Google isn’t the only one to loosen its Covid-19 guidelines. Apple was the first to make it mandatory for shoppers in retail shops to wear masks, has dropped the requirement for masks. The new guidelines have been introduced in states and countries in which Covid-19 cases are virtually not even present. Buyers in India are required to wear masks when they go outside their home or go to a store.
