Apple will require a person to demonstrate their COVID-19 booster, according to The Verge

Apple Inc's official website, The Verge, will require employees to provide a proof of the COVID-19 booster dose on January 15 (Reuters) citing an internal email.

Unvaccinated employees and those who haven't submitted a proof of vaccination will need negative COVID-19 tests to enter Apple workplaces, according to the Verge.

"The emergence of highly transmissible variants such as Omicron and the reversal of the primary series of COVID-19 vaccinations has made a difference," according to The Verge.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

As the Omicron variant increases infections across the country, many companies in the United States have boosted their COVID-19 measures, mandated vaccination and postponed the back-to-work plans.

This week, Facebook's parent Meta Platforms mandated COVID-19 booster doses for all employees returning to their offices, and it delayed office reopenings until March 28, according to an earlier plan of January 31.

Google of Alphabet Inc said on Friday that it would be prohibited from taking weekly COVID-19 testing for people entering its US offices.

According to A Report, Amazon.com Inc has offered $40 to its warehouse workers in the United States, to get a booster dose.
