Social distancing, signs
As of June 17, California has aligned rules for workplaces and employees with the guidelines previously released for the general public.
In short, workplace rules from the Division of Occupational Safety and Health, or Cal-OSHA, have been brought in line with California’s recently eased guidance for the public.
- Those who are fully vaccinated do not need to wear masks in most situations.
- Unvaccinated workers still need to wear masks indoors unless alone or eating or drinking.
- Employees no longer need to physically distance.
- Workplaces can take down plastic protective barriers.
- Workplaces must still provide masks to workers who request one.
New Cal-OSHA rules typically take about 10 days of review, but Gov. Newsom has issued an executive order to have them take effect June 18.
The new rules end days of conflict between those for workplaces and those for the public.
But they still present some challenges for employers, which will have to decide if they want to determine who’s vaccinated and who’s not.
Employers can confidentially verify a vaccination document or allow employees to self-attest.
Employers could still require masks in cases where some employees are vaccinated and others are not.
