Meta eliminates booster requirement for in-person employees

Facebook's parent company Meta, will eliminate COVID-19 booster requirements for employees returning to its U.S. facilities, CNBC reported April 1.

The company, which began bringing employees back into the office March 28, initially required employees to have proof of a booster shot Jan. 10 but has reversed its guidelines.

"We updated our requirements in early March to align with CDC guidance, and now COVID-19 boosters are no longer required for entry, though strongly recommended," a Meta spokesperson told CNBC. "The primary vaccination requirement (one or two-shot series) remains in place."

The spokesperson did not provide an explanation for the change.

Other Big Tech names such as Apple require their in-person employees to show proof they have received a COVID-19 vaccine and booster shot.
