AT&T is requiring its managerial staff to be vaccinated against COVID-19 before they can enter company offices, the carrier confirmed on Friday. And all staff must wear masks before entering work locations in areas with high or substantial virus transmission, regardless of vaccination status.

Unvaccinated AT&T managers who must work from an office need to be fully vaccinated by Oct. 11.

"We will make exceptions for employees who are unable to be vaccinated for medical or other reasons," an AT&T spokesperson said in a statement.

AT&T has entered discussions with unions to figure out the rules that'll apply to its unionized employees.

The vaccination requirement comes as the highly contagious delta variant of the coronavirus spreads globally. Tech giants like Google and Microsoft have already said they'll require employees to get shots.
