To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the potential risk of exposure to our workforce, many of our client's workforce and visitors must comply with various prevention requirements, including masks and screenings.

MASK REQUIREMENTS

MJS employees who wish to stop wearing a mask in approved settings must provide proof of vaccination to the Human Resources department.

Employees who choose not to provide this information must continue to wear a mask.

If the assigned facility still requires masks, you must comply with the facility’s requirements regardless of vaccination status.

Per the CDC, certain individuals and situations may still require a mask be worn. More information can be found here.

Wear a Mask:

  • If you are not fully vaccinated and aged 2 or older, you should wear a mask in indoor public places.
  • In general, you do not need to wear a mask in outdoor settings.
  • In areas with high numbers of COVID-19 cases, consider wearing a mask in crowded outdoor settings and for activities with close contact with others who are not fully vaccinated.
  • People who have a condition or are taking medications that weaken their immune system may NOT be protected even if they are fully vaccinated. They should continue to take all precautions recommended for unvaccinated people, including wearing a well-fitted mask, until advised otherwise by their healthcare provider.
    If you are fully vaccinated, see below.

When You’ve Been Fully Vaccinated

  • Wearing a mask over your nose and mouth is required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and while indoors at U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations. Travelers are not required to wear a mask in outdoor areas of a conveyance (like on open deck areas of a ferry or the uncovered top deck of a bus).
  • Masks must still be worn in a all medical facilities.
  • Masks must still be worn when mandated by city, state or federal regulations.

Some people in your family need to continue to take steps to protect themselves from COVID-19, including:

  • Anyone not fully vaccinated, including children under 12 who cannot be vaccinated yet.
  • People with weakened immune systems or underlying medical conditions.

ILLNESS

Current symptoms reported for patients with COVID-19 have included mild to severe respiratory illness. Symptoms may include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough

  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or Body Aches
  • Headache
  • New Loss of Taste or Smell

  • Call ahead before visiting your doctor - Call 911 if you have a medical emergency: If you have a medical emergency and need to call 911, notify the dispatch personnel that you have, or are being evaluated for COVID-19. If possible, put on a face mask before emergency medical services arrive.
  • Wear a face mask if you are sick.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes.

WHAT GUIDANCE DOES THE CDC GIVE ON PREVENTING THE SPREAD OF C19?

You can help prevent yourself from getting and spreading COVID-19 (and other respiratory illnesses) by following these steps:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
    • Use 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth, especially with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Close contact includes kissing, hugging, and sharing cups or eating utensils with people.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or shirt sleeve, not your hands.
    • Dispose of the tissue.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as toys and doorknobs, especially if someone is sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
