Amazon Lifts Mask Mandate for Fully Vaccinated U.S. Warehouse Employees

Amazon is rolling back its mask requirement for fully vaccinated warehouse workers.

Starting Tuesday, fully vaccinated operations employees in the U.S. will no longer be required to wear a face covering at work, unless mandated by state or local law, according to a notice Amazon sent to workers Friday that was viewed by CNBC.

“Vaccines are universally available across the U.S. and vaccination rates continue to rise which enables the ability to return to our previous mask policy,” the notice states.

An Amazon spokesperson confirmed the company is changing its mask policy in warehouses. Amazon continues to evaluate all of its Covid safety measures based on guidance from public health officials and internal medical experts, the spokesperson added.
