Covid-19: CNN Fires Three Employees For Coming To Work Unvaccinated

CNN has fired three employees who violated company policy by coming to work unvaccinated against Covid-19.

Jeff Zucker, the media company’s president, told staff members of the firing in a memo sent Thursday, 5 August, that reminded them that vaccines were mandatory if they report to the office or out in the field where they come into contact with other employees.

“Let me be clear, we have a zero-tolerance policy on this,” wrote Zucker, chairman of news and sports for WarnerMedia.

The memo was obtained by the Associated Press after its contents were first tweeted by CNN media reporter Oliver Darcy. CNN offered no details on the firings, or where the employees were based.

Most of CNN’s offices are already open on a voluntary basis, and Zucker said more than a third of news staff members have returned. Proof of vaccination has been left to the honor system, he said, but that may change in the coming weeks.

The CNN leader said that masks will be required in Atlanta, Washington, and Los Angeles offices when people aren’t eating, drinking, or in an enclosed private space. Even in offices where mask-wearing is not mandated, people should do what feels comfortable to them “without any fear of retaliation or judgment from co-workers”, he said.

The CNN memo also said a planned 7 September company-wide return to the office will be delayed until at least early to mid-October.

Industries across the country are grappling with workplace policies on getting Covid-19 vaccines, which have been proven to be incredibly effective at preventing serious illness. In Silicon Valley, Google, Facebook, and Uber recently announced mandatory vaccinations for those returning to the office, while New York City and California have moved to require all government workers to be vaccinated or face regular testing.
