(Reuters) – U.S. passenger railroad Amtrak said Tuesday that nearly all of its 18,000 employees will need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by November 22.

The railroad said in an email to staff that it would only allow regular coronavirus testing for medical and religious accommodation instead of vaccines.
