Hey Compliance Warriors!
On Friday, February 25th, the CDC announced more relaxed guidelines for when Americans should be masking.
This new guidance takes a few things into consideration when determining the need to mask in your area:
- New COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents in the past seven days.
- New COVID-19-related hospital admissions.
- The percentage of hospital beds occupied by COVID-19 patients.
As always, employers may create stronger policies and procedures than recommended in this new guidance. Whatever. you do, be very clear and make sure all employees have plenty of notice before implementing a more strict policy.
