CWS Statement on CDC Mask Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated

On May 13, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued new guidance on fully vaccinated individuals. The guidance now clarifies that individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 “no longer need to wear a mask or physically distance in any setting, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.”

CWS will continue to monitor the CDC for new guidance on vaccinated individuals as well as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s efforts to implement this new recommendation and update existing workplace guidance to reflect the changes.
