The Walt Disney Company is requiring its employees to get the coronavirus vaccine within 60 days.
“We are requiring that all salaried and non-union hourly employees in the U.S. working at any of our sites be fully vaccinated,” the company said in a statement Friday.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Employees who aren’t already vaccinated and are working on-site will have 60 days from today to complete their protocols and any employees still working from home will need to provide verification of vaccination prior to their return, with certain limited exceptions,” the statement added.
“We have also begun conversations around this topic with the unions representing our employees under collective bargaining agreements,” Disney said.
The statement continues, “In addition, all new hires will be required to be fully vaccinated before beginning employment. Vaccines are the best tool we all have to help control this global pandemic and protect our employees.”
Disney also announced on Thursday that masks are now required at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts.
“Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) while indoors and in Disney buses, monorail and Disney Skyliner, regardless of vaccination status. This includes upon entering and throughout all attractions,” the company wrote.
Disney, which had 203,000 employees worldwide as of last fall, joined Google et al in mandating employee vaccines. Its statement: pic.twitter.com/liWfqXLJmu
