Amazon to end testing for COVID-19 at warehouses this month

Amazon said it will stop testing its workers for COVID-19 at its warehouses at the end of July, citing the availability of vaccines and free testing

The company began testing warehouse workers last year when tests were more difficult to secure. Warehouse workers, who were considered essential, packed and shipped orders throughout the pandemic.

Amazon disclosed in October that nearly 20,000 workers, or about 1.4% of its total workforce, had been infected with COVID-19 by that point in 2020.

News that Amazon would stop testing workers was first reported by The Information.
