Employees at Starbucks—all 228,000 of them nationwide— are no longer required to be vaccinated against COVID-19, reports Fox Business.
“We respect the Court’s ruling and will comply,” Starbucks Chief Operating Officer John Culver wrote in a memo to employees.
Still, the coffee chain is encouraging all workers to be vaccinated and boosted against the virus. “I want to emphasize that we continue to believe strongly in the spirit and intent of the mandate,” Culver added. “Thank you to the more than 90% of partners who have already disclosed their vaccination status, and to the vast majority who are now fully vaccinated.”
