COVID-19 vaccination and masks to be required for some AT&T employees


Dallas-based AT&T rolled out new steps around masks and vaccinations as the challenges around the pandemic rise.

The Dallas telecommunications giant is implementing the new guidance from the CDC on face coverings, regardless of vaccination status, who work locations in areas with high or substantial transmission of COVID-19.

That means employees need to wear a face-covering indoors, unless alone in an office or an enclosed area. AT&T is requiring management employees to be vaccinated before entering a worksite.

It plans to begin discussions with its union groups to align on a path forward for those workers. There will be exceptions for employees unable to be vaccinated for medical or other reasons.
