Amazon.com Inc . said all workers at its hundreds of U.S. warehouses will have to wear masks again starting Wednesday, a mandate prompted by the rapid spread of the coronavirus’s Omicron variant.

Amazon, the nation’s second-largest private employer behind Walmart Inc., had previously only required warehouse staff to wear masks if they weren’t vaccinated against Covid-19 or worked in jurisdictions where face coverings were required indoors.
