The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated their guidance regarding masks stating that:
“…fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal or territorial laws, rules, and regulation including local business and workplace guidance.”
This guidance has left many employers wondering whether they can lift their mask requirements. Consistent with every pandemic-related guidance, the answer is – it depends.
Attorneys Chuck Palmer, Brian Paul, and Farrah Rifelj discuss what employers should take into consideration prior to lifting mask requirements in the workplace.
