    Michigan agency urges employers to have all workers wear masks

    The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration on Thursday warned state employers to take the delta variant of COVID-19 seriously and heed Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to prevent the spread of the virus.

    For areas with substantial or high community transmission, the CDC recommends implementing face coverings for all employees and visitors indoors (including fully vaccinated individuals) and adopting the CDC recommended testing strategy for vaccinated employees that have been exposed to a COVID-19-positive person.  

    More than half of Michigan’s 83 counties are considered to be substantial or high community transmission areas. 

    MIOSHA officials said they are taking seriously the CDC’s guidelines given that the delta variant “is much more contagious, may infect those that have been vaccinated and may also allow vaccinated individuals to spread the virus,” according to a news release.
