Wall Street firms started implementing vaccination policies well before President Joe Biden began pressing businesses the week of Aug. 23 to implement vaccination mandates after the Food and Drug Administration approved Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine.

On July 27, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released updated guidance on the need for urgently increasing COVID-19 vaccination coverage and a recommendation for everyone in areas of substantial or high transmission to wear a mask in public indoor places, even if they are fully vaccinated.

CDC noted a significant increase in new cases reversed what had been a steady decline since January 2021.

Most of the biggest hedge funds, including Millennium Management, Bridgewater Associates and Point72 Asset Management, are also requiring U.S. staff to be vaccinated before they can return to the office, according to Bloomberg.

On the conference front, SkyBridge’s SALT New York 2021 conference, taking place Sept. 13 to 15, is also requiring that all attendees provide proof of full vaccination. The Financial Planning Association has canceled its annual conference, which was to be held Sept. 22-24 in Columbus, Ohio, due to COVID-19 and delta variant concerns.
