NEW YORK — CNN has fired three employees for violating its policy that employees must be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.

The firings were revealed Thursday as part of a memo sent by Jeff Zucker, chairman of WarnerMedia news and sports.

CNN did not provide any details about the firings, but Zucker wrote that the company has a “zero tolerance policy” about unvaccinated employees working in its offices.

Like several news organizations, including The Associated Press on Thursday, CNN has delayed a planned post-Labor Day return to offices.

Both companies said returns will be delayed until at least October, with further evaluations based on the progress of COVID cases.
