Goldman Sachs will require staff in its US offices to take weekly COVID-19 tests even if they are fully vaccinated, the New York Times reported.
The banking giant told staff in a memo Tuesday that employees who were not fully vaccinated by September 7 must work from home, per The Times.
The memo said that employees should wear masks at all times at the company's San Francisco and Washington offices unless they are eating or drinking, per The Times.
The bank also said in the memo that it would require anyone entering its US offices to be fully vaccinated, including clients, per The Times.
Goldman's new rules come amid a surge in cases of the Delta variant across the country. In New York City, where Goldman has its head office, 94% of tested cases in the past four weeks were caused by the highly contagious strain, according to local government data.
Vaccines work well against the Delta variant, but some vaccinated people are still catching COVID-19. In most cases, these people have reported mild symptoms, or none at all.
Companies have grappled with whether to mandate vaccinations for their employees in recent months. Earlier in August,

Goldman Sachs did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
