Google mandates vaccines for employees returning to office

Tech giant Google has declared that all of its employees returning to work in its offices will need to be vaccinated. Google's decision comes as President Joe Biden mulls mandatory shots for all federal workers.
As the coronavirus pandemic took hold, Google sent the majority of its almost 140,000 employees home last March to work remotely. Now though, the tech giant's campuses are reopening, and workers are returning to the office, but only once they've been vaccinated, CEO Sundar Pichai told his employees in an email on Wednesday.
“Anyone coming to work on our campuses will need to be vaccinated,” Pichai wrote, adding that the policy will be rolled out in the US in the coming weeks, and worldwide afterwards.
