CDC Provides Updated Guidance
This article is from our friends at SESCO Management Consultant, ASA's Human Resource partner. To learn more about this and all of the incredible benefits that are included in your ASA membership, click here.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued updated guidance recommending that even fully-vaccinated individuals should wear masks indoors in geographic areas of “substantial or high transmission.” The CDC also recommends even fully-vaccinated individuals get tested and wear a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days if they have a known exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 or until they receive a negative test.
The CDC does not directly regulate employers – it just offers recommendations and guidance. Time will tell how the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and state agencies/governors will respond to the updated CDC guidance. Of course, we will provide further updates when new guidance or requirements are released.
SESCO Management Consultants will continue to monitor and report on developments with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic.
