    AGC Working hard to clear up latest CDC mask guidance for workplace compliance. The new CDC stance on wearing a mask in vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals has cause quite a stir. It has also resulted in a lot of questions on how it affects the workplace and OSHA Guidance. AGC of Colorado is keeping in close communication with AGC of America as well as our local OSHA Area Directors. We will continue to update everyone as we work through this information with them. We will be updating the AGC of Colorado webpage with this information as it comes in. For the time being please read the following communication from Fisher Phillips for the  3 options employers can take to stay in compliance until OSHA updates their guidance.

    The new CDC stance on wearing a mask for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals has caused quite a stir. It has also resulted in a lot of questions on how it affects the workplace and OSHA Guidance. AGC of Colorado is keeping in close communication with AGC of America as well as our local OSHA Area Directors. We will continue to update everyone as we work through this information with them. We will be updating the AGC of Colorado webpage with this information as it comes in.

    Here is a statement from Kevin Cannon, AGC/A Senior Director of Safety and Health Services:

    In light of the recent CDC guidance regarding fully vaccinated individuals, OSHA as indicated that they are reviewing the new guidance and will update the OSHA guidance accordingly. Until OSHA has completed their updates, they advise employers to refer to the CDC guidance for measures appropriate to protect fully vaccinated workers. AGC will continue to monitor the OSHA website for these updates. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact Bradley Gassman at bradley@agccolorado.org

    "Inconsistent guidance at the state and federal levels will be a common issue for employers over the next several months, with federal OSHA and the CDC mandating certain requirements and more and more states eliminating certain required measures.  Be proactive in assessing the governing guidelines to ensure your workplace protects workers and minimizes the risk of an OSHA inspection or citation."
