  • CDC Reverses Course . . . Again

The CDC has changed course again. Yesterday (July 27), the CDC issued new masking guidelines in response to the Delta variant of COVID-19. Effective July 27, 2021, the CDC recommends that all persons—vaccinated or otherwise—mask up indoors (see here). Yesterday’s guidance comes as a reversal of the CDC’s prior relaxation of masking guidance for vaccinated individuals.

While the CDC’s guidelines are technically not binding (after all, they are “guidelines”—not legal decrees), we anticipate that the new guidelines portend a sea change in the law (once again!) in California on the State, city, and county levels. Employers must be on the lookout for the latest masking guidelines and protocols in this ever-evolving, fluid situation.
