Apple Inc is finally dropping its mask mandate at most of the locations for its corporate employees, as per the Verge. Back in 2020, when the coronavirus pandemic came, the company made it mandatory for the employees to wear a mask. Now, after almost two years after the pandemic, the decision has been reversed.
As per an internal email received by the Verge, due to the current scenario, wearing a face mask would no longer be mandatory in most locations. However, if an individual wish to continue wearing a face mask, he must be encouraged to do so.
The internal email also reads that everyone’s personal circumstances are different and the company respects that. So, one must do what he feels comfortable in.
Apple’s HQ is located in Santa Clara Country and is among the Bay Area counties that have already proved that widespread country mask mandate makes little or no difference when it comes to curbing the spread of COVID-19.
Also, California’s Alameda Country is the only county in the Bay Area that made it necessary to wear a mask all over again for most of June 2022. And despite this decision, Alameda saw “near identical” case curves as nearby counties, which included Santa Clara.
