People visiting an Apple Store in the United States won’t have to wear a mask as soon as tomorrow, according to a new report by Bloomberg.
According to that report, Apple won’t be asking people whether they have been vaccinated upon entry either, although team members will still continue to wear masks as a precaution.
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.
Apple is also said to be considering removing the need for people who work at its Cupertino offices to also wear masks, although that has yet to be confirmed. Bloomberg also didn’t say where it was getting its information specifically, although that’s nothing new here.
Workers will still need to wear masks at stores, Apple told staff. The company could change its plans or delay the loosening of the restriction. The requirement for face coverings will also be dropped at some of the Cupertino, California-based company’s U.S. offices, according to a memo sent to corporate employees.
Apple recently told its office workers that they will need to return to facilities like Apple Park from September, although they will be allowed to work from home two days per week. The company is also allowing them to work from anywhere for two additional weeks per year, too.
The decision not to require masks to enter Apple Stores is a far cry from where we were not too long ago, with Apple Stores the world over closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
