The New York Stock Exchange announced Wednesday that it will require full Covid-19 vaccination for access to the trading floor as of Sept. 13.
The stock exchange said exemptions are being granted for medical or religious reasons. It is also expanding its onsite random testing to include vaccinated personnel.
The NYSE already requires that people visiting to ring the bell, and those coming in for IPOs, show proof of vaccination. Wednesday’s announcement extends the requirement to those who work on the floor.
