Amazon is forgoing its coronavirus paid sick leave policy now that the U.S. has gotten a better grip on the pandemic.
In an internal memo obtained by FOX Business, Amazon informed employees that the company would be shifting back to pre-COVID policies thanks to the "sustained easing of the pandemic, ongoing availability of COVID-19 vaccines and treatments, and updated guidance from public health authorities."

This includes returning to its standard sick leave policy. Moving forward, all U.S. employees will "get up to five days of excused, unpaid time for a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis, regardless of vaccine status," according to the memo.
