This week, California’s economy reopened, and with it, the state dropped most mask requirements - but not all. Masks are still required for workers while they’re at work. Thursday, California’s workplace regulatory board - Cal OSHA - meets to vote on a proposal that would change coronavirus protocols in the workplace. Fully vaccinated workers could stop wearing masks and practicing physical distancing requirements. Today on AirTalk, we speak with KPCC health reporter Jackie Fortier about what the proposed rules say - and don’t say - and break down the confusion over masking in the workplace.
