Over the past few weeks, the talking heads over at Fox News Network have spent a good chunk of their time absolutely railing against the mere idea of businesses that are putting into place some sort of vaccine requirement for their workers and customers. The concept of even being able to question whether or not someone is vaccinated against the deadly COVID-19 virus has been labeled as everything from a HIPPA violation (which it’s not) to downright unconstitutional (which it is also not.)
However, with all that yelling and griping and complaining, it appears as though Fox is keeping quite the secret behind closed doors.
Ad Week recently obtained a leaked internal memo from Fox News and it appears to show that the Conservative cable news network is, in fact, its own sort of vaccine passport/requirement program.
While the memo doesn’t directly indicate that Fox is requiring their employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19, it does show that the network is asking all Fox employees to submit their vaccination status to a central database. From there, the information will reportedly be used for “space planning and contact tracing purposes in conjunction with CDC/state/city health and safety guidelines.”

And it doesn’t stop there, folks. Oh no. Not even close.
In addition to requiring their employees to reveal their vaccination status, the network is also apparently requiring some of their employees to be tested for COVID-19 at least once a week through their on-site COVID testing program.
It seems as though Fox is also “requiring employees to wear a mask in small, confined spaces with limited opportunities for social distancing and where there are multiple employees.”
In case you’re interested in taking a peek at the full memo that was penned by Fox News chief executive Suzanne Scott, you can check that out right here:
