Apple has tried to protect its corporate employees and retail staff since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, employees had to wear their masks in most locations, but the company now dropped the mask requirement. Here are the details.
Employees don’t need to wear a mask at Apple
According to some sources, Apple is updating its health and safety protocols “in light of current circumstances” for its corporate employees. The company confirms in the email that employees no longer have to wear a face mask unless local health authorities still require it.
You can read the full Apple’s email below:
We are writing to share an update to our current protocols. In light of current circumstances, wearing a face mask will no longer be required in most locations.

Earlier this year, Apple dropped the mask requirement for employees at Apple Retail Stores in the US. In March, the company allowed most of its employees to decide whether to wear a mask or not in some places. With the latest Apple mask requirement decision, it seems Apple is taking another step toward returning to normal activities.
