Amazon makes masks obligatory in warehouses

Amazon told employees in warehouses in the United States that they will be obliged to wear face masks from Monday over fresh COVID-19 concerns.

In a notice to employees, the company noted even vaccinated staff will have to wear masks and added it hopes the measures will be in effect only for a few weeks. "In response to the concerning spread of new Covid-19 variants in the US and guidance from public health authorities and our own medical experts, we are requiring face coverings indoors regardless of vaccination status," Amazon spokesperson Kelly Nantel stated.

Earlier this week, media reported Amazon postponed the planned return of its workers to offices until January 2022 due to the latest surge in US infections.
