The hosts of Fox News have been pushing vaccine hesitancy for months now. Sean Hannity says the vaccine isn’t protecting people from getting COVID. Tucker Carlson says it’s an infringement upon freedom. And Brian Kilmeade says that it’s a personal choice.But it isn’t a much of a choice at the Fox Corporation. According to an internal memo acquired by CNN’s Oliver Darcy, the small percentage of un-vaxxed Fox employees will be tested on a daily basis.
The full memo read:
“Following our request for employees to upload their vaccination status in our secure system, we are pleased to share that more than 90% of our full-time employees reported that they are fully vaccinated. This is important information for our company to know as we continue to implement our phased return to office timing and procedures.
Soon we will introduce another important health and safety measure for access to our facilities – daily COVID testing for the small group of employees who are not vaccinated or have not provided their vaccination status. Additional details about this protocol will be shared with the relevant employees in the near future.
We appreciate your continued cooperation as we work together in the best interests of our shared well-being. Thank you for being a valued FOX team member as an exciting fall season across our business is already underway.”
Fox Corp. HR chief Kevin Lord just sent out a memo to staff saying that “90% of full-time employees reported they are fully vaccinated” after the company mandated everyone report their vaccination status.
Lord says they will soon introduce daily COVID testing for unvaccinated.
