Cloth Face Masks, OSHA and Modifying Advice during COVID-19

Cloth Face Masks, OSHA and Modifying Advice during COVID-19

OSHA, my favorites today, have decided that I needed to be humbled and modify some advice I gave a few weeks ago. Employers are NOT required to provide cloth face masks since cloth face masks are not considered personal protective equipment (PPE) under the OSHA law.

Here is OHSA’s new FAQs on cloth face masks.

For more information, here are the CDC guidelines on washing cloth face masks.

If you have questions, please contact us or other qualified counsel.
