Netflix To Require Vaccination For Production

In a sign of growing concern over lagging vaccination rates driving a new surge of COVID-19 cases in the United States, Netflix said this week that it will now require actors and others on productions to be vaccinaed. The news apparently will make netflix the first Hollywood studio to put in place broad vaccination requirements. The move comes as Twitter has delayed return to its offices in San Francisco and New York again due to the spiking case rate, and Google--which also has substantial operations in Los Angeles--is planning to require all employees to be vaccinated when they return to the office, and also has delayed return to offices from September 1st to October 18th.
