November 10: Updated Mask Protocol

November 10, 2020

Good Afternoon,

As promised last week, we have updated our Face Mask Protocol to align ourselves with the latest guidance from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, MIOSHA and the CDC.

Click here for the updated protocol.

The biggest change is that starting Monday, November 16, gaiters, along with bandanas and face shields, will not be permitted since they no longer meet the definition of a face mask. Jeff Mann has new compliant masks in stock in a couple of sizes. Supervisors can pick-up masks for their employees by request. If you need a new mask(s), talk with your supervisor. We will provide up to 2 masks per employee so that they can be washed daily.

I know this is an inconvenience, but we need to make this change to remain compliant with state rules and our own insurance pool. These types of masks also better protect you and your co-workers from possible spread of the virus.

Please let me, your supervisor or director know if you have any questions.

Thank you!

Take care and stay safe,
