The Washington Post will require all employees to be vaccinated by September 13, when they return to the office, with exemptions only granted on documented medical and religious grounds.
“I do not take this decision lightly,” said publisher Fred Ryan. “However, in considering the serious health issues and genuine safety concerns of so many Post employees, I believe the plan is the right one.”
