Morgan Stanley told its employees Tuesday that workers and customers who are not vaccinated against Covid-19 will be banned from returning to its New York City and Westchester County offices with a large staff presence from July 12, CNBC has confirmed .
All Morgan Stanley employees in the New York area must now confirm their coronavirus vaccination status by July 1.
Employees who are not fully vaccinated will still have to work remotely, the company told workers on Tuesday.
The move that will allow Morgan Stanley to lift masking and physical distancing requirements in its offices follows similar moves by other financial giants.
Blackstone said last month that U.S. workers in investment departments could return to their offices full-time on June 7th if they are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.
Goldman Sachs sent its employees a memo earlier this month asking them to disclose their vaccination status.
Morgan Stanley had previously only requested that employees in certain areas of the company be fully vaccinated in order to return to their offices.
The Financial Times first reported Tuesday, citing a company memo, that Morgan Stanley would require employees, customers and visitors in the New York area to be fully vaccinated to enter corporate workplaces in New York City and Westchester County.
