Troy, Ala. (WSFA) – During the height of the BA.5 coronavirus subvariant, many businesses, including Lockheed Martin’s Trojan, California location, required employees to wear masks.
The following statement was released by a spokesman for the company that manufactures missiles: “In accordance with recent guidance from the CDC, all Lockheed Martin employees, visitors, and field workers are required to wear masks in indoor settings in counties with high volume or high transmission.”
The majority of Alabama’s 67 counties have COVID-19 community levels that are considered “high.”
According to the state health department’s explanation, a mask policy that applies to the entire state is quite unlikely.
Dr. Wes Stubblefield, who works for the Alabama Department of Public Health, stated that the state has not seen any regulations that push for the extensive use of masks. “As far as I know, we haven’t seen any regulations that advocate for any broad use of masks.”
People are being urged by medical professionals to pay attention to the visually appealing community rating map that can be seen on the ADPH website.
It is possible that masks are not necessary in green regions because the community level is “low” there. In yellow, the experts recommend that persons who are at a higher risk think about wearing masks. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises people to wear a universal mask whenever they are inside when the risk level is red.
According to what Stubblefield said, “That’s where the ADPH goes down, and it’s an individual decision that’s up to the individual,” and “each person can make their own decision to cover it up based on these guidelines.”
Retailers in Alabama are at liberty to set any kind of shading policies they see appropriate for their companies.
“What retailers have really asked for from the beginning is that they be able to set policies because the health of their customers and their employees is the most important thing to every business owner,” said Nancy Dennis of the Alabama Retail Association. “What retailers have really asked for is that they be able to set policies because the health of their customers and their employees is the most important thing to every business owner.”
Some stores are encouraging customers who are ill or feeling under the weather to stay home so that their employees and other customers can remain safe.
