Masking at the Office
Listed below are masking alternatives adopted by law firms that have reopened their offices. Masking procedures are complicated by Coronavirus surges, changing mandates, and varying attitudes. Prior to adopting a policy, read masking articles about attitudes, benefits, encouraging, policies, and procedures. Use a reopening checklist and consult sample policies about vaccinations and voluntary and mandatory use of masks. Use Wolters Kluwer Smart Charts to check federal regulations and comply with state and local authorities.
