As the trajectory of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, government officials at all levels are reevaluating their health and safety protocols and adjusting workplace guidance based on ever-shifting case metrics. While all states had begun reopening over the summer, rising cases have caused many jurisdictions to either pause their progress, or return to more restrictive measures. Jurisdictions across the country continue to progress and regress by implementing different measures, on different timetables - resulting in a patchwork that is particularly challenging for multistate employers.
The chart below provides links to key reopening orders and/or mitigation measures issued in recent weeks, at the statewide level. Employers should bear in mind that these materials typically offer detailed instructions, which often vary by industry. As a result, it is important to review each order along with any corresponding official guidance to get a complete picture of all requirements and how they may impact each employer's operations. We will update this list regularly but expect it will become outdated quickly as new announcements are made.
Note that this chart does not cover orders or guidance issued at the local level. Employers should consult with counsel for our additional resources on orders that may apply to their operations.
