Fox News is demanding all employees disclose their COVID-19 vaccination status, according to a memo from the company’s chief executive, Suzanne Scott.
The company, according to Newsweek, does not require its employees to be vaccinated against coronavirus at the time of this reporting.
A Tuesday memo obtained by Adweek reveals that the company has “asked all employees — whether on site as part of our essential workforce or working remotely — to upload their vaccination status” into an internal company database maintained by human resources.
A portion of the company-wide memo reads, “All employees must enter their status no later than today, August 17th, by close of business.”
The network, according to the outlet, is requiring the disclosure in order to adhere to “space planning and contact tracing purposes in conjunction with CDC/state city health and safety guidelines.”
