BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

American Express ends COVID vaccine requirements for working from office

COVID vaccine

(Reuters) — American Express Co. has lifted COVID-19 vaccine requirements at its offices, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters on Wednesday, as the credit card giant prepares to remove pandemic-era protocols.

The new guidelines will take effect on Nov. 1 and will apply to offices in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, according to the memo.

AmEx’s decision reflects a growing desire among companies to seek a return to normalcy as the pandemic recedes. Last month, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. also removed vaccine requirements for most of its U.S. offices.

The move comes nearly a year after the New York-based company mandated full vaccination for U.S. employees working from office.

Staff who test positive for COVID-19 should submit a health form and stay at home until AmEx’s medical office clears them, the memo said.

The plans were first reported by Bloomberg News.
