Published Monday, August 17, 2020 10:00 am

On Thursday, August 13th, Governor Brown released updated face mask guidance. This revised guidance provides clarification for employees in private offices, as well as offices open to the public.

While such guidance was implied before, the revised guidance makes it clear that masks, face coverings or face shields are required at all times for employees in public and private office spaces, including hallways, bathrooms, elevators, lobbies, break rooms, and other common spaces, unless employees are at individual work spaces or in meeting rooms where six feet of social distancing can be consistently maintained.

As a reminder, employers must also provide masks, face shields or face coverings to their employees.

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
