Deutsche Bank Mandates Vaccines to Enter New York Headquarters
(Bloomberg) -- Deutsche Bank AG will require anyone entering its new U.S. headquarters to be vaccinated against Covid-19, broadening its policy as other financial firms restrict access for those who don’t get shots.
The rule applies to staff, vendors and clients seeking access to Deutsche Bank Center at 1 Columbus Circle in New York, according to a person familiar with the matter. That represents an expansion from guidance provided earlier in August, when the lender said it would allow only fully vaccinated employees to access U.S. trading floors.
Many of the Frankfurt-based firm’s biggest U.S. competitors are mandating that people entering their buildings be vaccinated or wear masks. Deutsche Bank is moving into its new headquarters on a staggered basis, giving it more space at each of its offices to comply with social-distancing rules, a person with knowledge of the matter said last week.
The bank, which is relocating from Wall Street, signed a lease at the building formerly known as Time Warner Center in 2018.
