Apple is implementing a new COVID-19 testing policy for US employees who work out of its offices and retail locations. Moving forward, the company will require unvaccinated employees to get tested more frequently than their vaccinated counterparts. News of the development was first reported by , with later obtaining confirmation from Apple.

We’ve reached out to the company for additional information. 

The policy is the latest effort by Apple to push its employees to get inoculated against the coronavirus.
