Starbucks drops vaccine and testing requirements

Starbucks drops worker vaccine requirement. Decision comes after SCOTUS ruling.

Where: United States

The Facts

In a memo on Tuesday, Starbucks announced that it had dropped a policy that required all its US workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or submit to weekly testing.

The company’s decision follows last week’s Supreme Court ruling, blocking the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine or test requirement for large employers.

In the memo, Starbucks’ Chief Operating Officer John Culver wrote, “We respect the court’s ruling.”

Culver also thanked over 90% of partners who had disclosed their vaccination status and the “vast majority who are now fully vaccinated.”

Meanwhile, apparel company Carhartt and Citigroup have stated their intention to stand by the vaccine mandate.
