The CDC’s Guidance on Vaccinated People: Who Can and (Probably) Shouldn’t Return to the Office

With 18.5 percent of the US having received at least one Covid-19 vaccine dose and 9.5 percent being fully vaccinated (as of March 9, 2021), it’s time to reap some rewards finally! Just not at work.

The CDC released guidelines that reduced restrictions on fully vaccinated people, but, as employment attorney Jon Hyman, points out “unless everyone entering your workplace is fully vaccinated, masks, distancing, and bans on gatherings will remain the norm for a little while longer.”

  1. With under 20% of the population vaccinated, you can’t rush into that “pre-pandemic” mode of operation, besides COVID-19 is still mutating. Perhaps you can try a gradual return to in-person, utilizing those employees who have been vaccinated but you still have to maintain the safety precautions. It has been a year now, every business should have undergone an evaluation on needed changes to accommodate the precautions. It may mean that you will have permanent staffing changes in how you schedule your business operations. This is especially true if you have a business that involves dealing with customers. If in doubt, look to the precautions taken by open healthcare (dental and doctor) offices. The same precautions will be needed for the communal areas (employee lounge). I just don’t see anything going back to pre-pandemic lack of sanitation and safety precautions. Getting vaccinated is only the first step, let’s not forget the need to maintain cleanliness.

  2. I’m looking forward to getting my vaccine, but I’m really digging not letting strangers see my nose.
    I know the governor of my state is ready to remove the state mask mandate at the end of the March (possibly) but my family will continue masking until the CDC recommends otherwise.
