Walmart mandates vaccines for workers at headquarters

NEW YORK (AP) — Walmart is requiring that all workers at its headquarters as well as managers who travel within the U.S. be vaccinated against COVID-19 by Oct. 4.

The retailer based in Bentonville, Arkansas, is also reversing its mask policy for its employees working in stores, clubs, distribution facilities and warehouses.

Going forward, they will be required to wear masks in areas with high infection rates, even if they have been vaccinated.

Walt Disney Co. also said Friday it’s requiring all salaried and non-union hourly employees in the U.S. working at any of its sites to be fully vaccinated.
