Ohio Lt. Gov. Jon Husted said customers should wear face coverings when they visit businesses, but will not be required to do so.
Workers, however, will be required to wear face coverings, he said.
According to Husted, there are exceptions to that mandate. They are...
- An employee in a particular position is prohibited by a law or regulation from wearing a face covering while on the job.
- Wearing a face covering on the job is against documented industry best practices.
- Wearing a face covering is not advisable for health purposes.
- If wearing a face covering is a violation of a company’s safety policies.
- An employee is sitting alone in an enclosed workspace.
- There is a practical reason a face covering cannot be worn by an employee.
Husted said if any of these exceptions apply to a certain business or an employee, written justification must be provided when requesting an exemption from the mandate.
