- Morgan Stanley said on Tuesday it had asked its U.S. employees to offer proof for COVID 19 vaccination, as the big bank doubles down on rules for staff entering its offices.
Nearly 90% of its U.S. employees have vaccinated against COVID - 19, the bank said, and would be required to furnish proof by Oct. 1.
Earlier, Morgan Stanley had mandated employees, clients and visitors to attest to being fully vaccinated for access to its offices in New York and Westchester.
Big Wall Street institutions have been grappling with questions about employee safety and how to bring back workers, in the wake of the spread of the highly infectious Delta variant of Coronavirus. While some firms have chosen to push back their return to office plans, other firms have pushed back the course.
Last week, Citigroup Inc. said it would require U.S. employees returning to its New York headquarters and Vaccination offices in some other cities to be vaccinated.
