Blackstone says U.S. employees should shoot boosters or get out of the office

Blackstone raises takeover bid for Crown Resorts to $ 6.5 billion

Blackstone Inc. is requiring U.S. staff to have Covid-19 booster shots to work in the workplace, joining Wall Street firms moving forward strain on their labor forces lately to get punches and step through more tests. The world’s biggest elective asset manager told representatives they should get boosters “as soon as practically possible,” a representative said Wednesday. Office laborers should be tested on-site three times a week, she said. Wall Street is grappling with a surge in Covid infections driven by the profoundly infectious omicron variant, which has overturned plans to return individuals once again to their desks.

Last year, Blackstone asked U.S. professionals to return to its offices full-time by early June. But when Covid cases skyrocketed across the country later in the year, the firm let staffers work from home through Jan. 18 of this year. The company recently pushed back the return to Jan. 28., the spokeswoman said.

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. said late last month it’s requiring boosters and doubling testing for office workers. This week, JPMorgan Chase & Co. Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon warned vaccine holdouts in New York that they won’t be able to work in the office — and that “we’re not going to pay you not to work in the office.”
