  • 1.  Mask Requirements - COVID 19

    Hello! 
    We own an electrical staffing company in the Bay Area but staff out to multiple counties and states. I think, generally, I understand employees are mandated to wear masks when in contact with others but want to understand are we required to purchase masks (as we are the employer, not the client)? What about employees who work more than a couple hours away, is reimbursement recommended? Additionally, what if employees purchase a very expensive option and request reimbursement? Lastly, do you have any recommendations aside from Amazon as to where to purchase somewhat affordable masks? 

    Thank you!

    I have been looking for answers to these questions as well.  We have had one client, to my knowledge so far, require our employees (who are onsite at client's facility) to wear masks.  One of our employees found a deal on masks for our team so we approved the purchase but we are discussing whether or not to charge it back to the client.  We will probably bring part of our corporate staff back in June and I need to decide if we will provide masks, reimburse for masks or each employee is responsible for the cost of a mask(s).  I have even looked into getting masks with our company logo on them.

    Thank you, Terry. Sounds like we are in the same boat. 
    I am curious, for the deal you found on masks to provide to your temp employees: were these reusable or a type of doctor's mask?

    Hi Mark,   I'm in NH and the state is providing PPE for any business that is reopening for free.   You sign up online and are distributing them through the county Motor Vehicle Offices.   Perhaps check with your governors office  - they too may have a similar resource.   Good Luck!

    An amazing entrepreneur (and friend of mine) shifted her business to start providing PPE. I believe she does have masks, etc. in stock.
