On Thursday, June 3rd, 2021, the powers that be at Cal/OSHA voted to require masks in the workplace for all employees if EVERYONE is not vaccinated.
When an employer has documented a fully vaccinated staff, only then will employees be given the option to unmask.
The California Chamber of Commerce says the rule is not aligned with new CDC guidance. But supporters say employees need to be protected.
Governor Gavin Newsom can override the rules and made this statement:
“The workplaces they’re protecting like meatpacking facilities larger industrial facilities have a different set of challenges and criteria and so OSHA always mindful of that, I’ll be mindful of that in terms of making any subsequent decisions,” he said. “We’ll see where they land today and will have more to say after I read the final determination.”
We will keep you posted if and when things change.
