Anyone who works with Mark Cuban has to be vaccinated.

The billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner spoke with The Ringer’s Kyle Brandt on his Spotify podcast, “10 Questions,” about his thoughts on the COVID-19 vaccine.

“If you work for me, I require my employees to be vaccinated, unless there’s a doctor’s reason where they can’t be,” Cuban said. “Like you, I don’t want my kids to be at risk.”

This comes after the Mavs decided to require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of game to attend.

In the podcast, Cuban defended the decision by referencing the need to protect immunocompromised fans, such as people who have had cancer.

“I’d rather feel good knowing that someone who’s immunocompromised or a cancer survivor is going to feel as safe as we can possibly make it coming to a game,” he said.
