In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s updated Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People issued on July 27, 2021, and guidance from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), all Federal employees, onsite contractors, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask inside of Federal buildings in areas of substantial or high community transmission.  Individuals who are not fully vaccinated, or decline to affirm their vaccination status, must wear a mask regardless of community transmission level. DOL employees, contractors, and  visitors may choose to wear a mask regardless of community transmission level.

The Department of Labor will monitor transmission levels on a weekly basis and use the following tool to provide employees, contractors, and visitors with the current mask requirements for facilities where DOL offices are located.  

Please be aware of the following --

  • When the level of transmission related to a given Federal facility increases from low or moderate to substantial or high, OMB has directed Federal agencies to put in place more protective safety protocols consistent with CDC guidelines and guidance from the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force as soon as operationally feasible.
  • Per OMB, when the level of transmission related to a given Federal facility is reduced from high or substantial to moderate or low, the level of transmission must remain at that lower level for at least two consecutive weeks before the agency utilizes those protocols recommended for areas of moderate or low transmission by CDC guidelines and guidance from the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force. 

Use the search feature to locate your DOL facility.  You can search by typing a portion of your facility’s address, city, state, and/or county.  Please contact COVID19Questions@dol.gov with any questions.
