States Lifting of COVID Restrictions Do Not Lift Federal Safety Responsibility

Labor & Employment Update | 06.07.21

Most states are lifting mask, distancing and other COVID restrictions. Some, such as Texas, have forbidden any counties or cities from requiring masks and distancing in public places, schools, and government facilities, and from having any rules which apply to private sector businesses or employers. Employers, though, may still impose their own rules in their operations. States’ decisions do not void federal rules or standards.
