Starbucks is reversing its COVID-19 vaccination policy for employees.

The announcement was made earlier this week after the Biden Administration sent out a memo requiring businesses with more than 100 employees to require the employees to get the COVID-19 vaccination.

Employees had to be vaccinated by Feb. 9 or face a weekly COVID-19 test requirement.

The Supreme court, however, recently ruled against the mandate.

Several companies have since reversed their requirements as well including Starbucks:

“We respect the court’s ruling and will comply,” Starbucks’ chief operating officer John Culver said in a memo, according to The Associated Press.

Starbucks has around 228,000 U.S employees, however, it is unclear how many of those employees were vaccinated.
