Postal Service Delivers New Mandatory Stand-Up Talk to Employees Concerning Additional CDC Recommendations: Cloth Face Coverings

Postal Service delivers new Mandatory Stand-Up Talk to employees concerning Additional CDC Recommendations: Cloth Face Coverings (pdf)

According to the Postal Service, newly published guidance, from the CDC now recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain because COVID-19 can spread between people interacting in close proximity.We strongly encourage all employees to follow the CDC’s recommendation. If you wish to use a surgical mask for the face covering, you may request a mask from your supervisor. Employees also may bring their own personal cloth face coverings to work for use while on duty. Employees should not rely solely on the use of cloth face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Employees also should adhere to social distancing guidelines (6 feet) whenever possible while on delivery routes, at retail counters, and within the postal workplace: in plants, on docks, and in lunch and break rooms.
