As the Delta variant has caused a spike in COVID-19 infections in the U.S., averaging 100,000 daily new cases, Corporate America is mandating its workers to get vaccinated.
Now, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is also on the list. On Wednesday, the Exchange said that it will require COVID-19 vaccination proof for people entering the building starting on September 13, however, exceptions would be made for people on medical or religious grounds.
Since the floor re-opened in May 2020, the NYSE has required proof of vaccination for those attending a bell ringing.
The NYSE shut down its trading floor in March 2020, at the peak of the pandemic, and switched to fully electronic trading.
