Apple corporate employees can now choose whether they’d want to wear a face mask or not while working at the office.
The Cupertino-based company has announced to its employees that they are no longer required to wear a face mask. The mask mandate has been lifted, ‘in light of certain circumstances’ as per the internal memo. The email also said that the mandate is being dropped in ‘most locations’, although there isn’t a specific office location or area where employees are required to wear a mask.
The email reminds employees that they can still wear a face mask if they’re more comfortable. Furthermore, the memorandum states that individual decisions must be respected in regards to the freedom to wear a mask or not.
Apple dropped its retail and corporate mask mandate in March when COVID-19 cases began a downward trend. However, it was reinstated shortly on both fronts when cases started shooting up again.
