- Are companies required to provide cloth face coverings to employees? If employees wear face coverings do companies still need to require social distancing? If respirators cannot be found for purchase, can an employee wear a face covering instead? Can wearing a face covering cause unsafe oxygen levels or harmful CO levels to the wearer? Is an employee required to inform their employer if they receive a positive Covid test?
These are just a few questions that are being asked by employers who are trying to navigate through this historical pandemic. In an attempt to answer some of our questions, OSHA published a “Frequently Asked Questions” page on their website and has been updating it periodically. In fact, they just added more answers to common questions in early August. If you haven’t checked it out recently, you might. Click here to visit the page.
