New York (CNN Business) -

After months of encouraging employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19, companies are beginning to take a tougher line and implement mandates, a dramatic escalation of corporate America's approach to stopping the spread of the virus.

Momentum for vaccine mandates has been building, with President Joe Biden expected to announce a requirement that all federal employees and contractors be vaccinated or required to undergo regular testing and mitigation requirements on Thursday.

On Wednesday, Google and Facebook became the first two Silicon Valley giants to issue mandates of their own.

These are the companies that have announced the covid-19 vaccine requirements for at least some of their employees.

Google

Google CEO Sundar Pichai sent an email to staff on Wednesday announcing a vaccination requirement for employees returning to the office.

The policy would roll out in the United States in the coming weeks and in other regions in the months that follow as vaccines become more available, Pichai said.

It's unclear how Google plans to enforce the policy.

Facebook

All Facebook employees should be vaccinated before returning to the office, the company announced Wednesday.

"As our offices reopen, we will require that everyone who comes to work at any of our US campuses be vaccinated," Lori Goler, Facebook's vice president of people, said in a statement.

"We will have a process for those who cannot be vaccinated for medical or other reasons and we will evaluate our approach in other regions as the situation evolves," he added.

Netflix

Netflix requires covid-19 vaccinations for the casts of all its American productions, as well as for the people who come into contact with them, according to Deadline.

Last week, Hollywood unions and major studios drew up return-to-work protocols that include "the option to implement mandatory vaccination policies for casts and crew in Zone A" on a production-by-production basis.

The "Zone A" is made up of the actors and the people who approach them.

BlackRock

BlackRock, the world's largest asset manager, currently only allows vaccinated employees to return to the office, a company spokesperson said.

This decision is a policy adjustment based on employee feedback and an employee survey, the spokesperson said.

Starting in September, the company will have a "hybrid model", with some vaccinated employees working from the office and others from home, the spokesperson added.

The company plans to share an updated policy for unvaccinated employees later in the summer.

The company accepted the call "after careful consideration of the updated CDC guidelines and in light of current conditions," a spokesperson told CNN Business.

"We continue to closely monitor local conditions and make necessary changes that prioritize the health and safety of our 'Tweeps."
