Current employees, however, won’t be required to get the COVID-19 shot, Ed Bastian said on CNN’s “Quest Means Business.”

“Any person joining Delta in the future, future employees, we’re going to mandate they be vaccinated before they can sign up with the company,” Bastian told host Richard Quest.

More than 60 percent of Delta workers already have at least one dose of the vaccine, Bastian said, adding he expects that 75 or 80 percent of staffers will eventually be fully vaccinated.
