Morgan Stanley told its staff on Tuesday that employees and customers who have not been vaccinated against Covid-19 will not be allowed to return to offices in New York City and Westchester County with a large employee presence from July 12, The Washington City Times has confirmed.
All Morgan Stanley employees in the New York metropolitan area are now also required to confirm their coronavirus vaccination status by July 1.
Employees who are not fully vaccinated will have to continue to work remotely, the company told employees on Tuesday.
The move, which will allow Morgan Stanley to lift masks and physical distancing requirements in its offices, follows similar moves by other financial giants.
Blackstone said last month that U.S. employees in investment departments could return to their offices full-time on June 7 if they are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.
Goldman Sachs sent employees a memo early this month asking them to disclose their vaccination status.
Morgan Stanley had previously only required employees to fully vaccinate certain areas of the company in order to return to their offices.
The The Washington City Times, citing a company memo, first reported on Tuesday that Morgan Stanley would require employees, customers and visitors in the New York area to be fully vaccinated before entering corporate spaces in New York City and Westchester County.
