Tesla tells workers at the Nevada battery factory that from Monday they must wear a mask indoors regardless of vaccination status, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday.
Employees at the Reno, Nevada facility were previously required to wear a mask if they were not vaccinated, but could avoid that requirement if they were, the Journal said, citing people familiar with the matter.
Tesla is the latest company to make masks mandatory after its Delta variant forced U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to change course and even recommend fully vaccinated individuals wear masks indoors.
Tesla did not immediately respond to a request from Reuters for comment after hours.
