The Postal Service has updated its face coverings policy: Effective March 29, the organization no longer requires any employee to wear a face covering while at work.
Because the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases is continuing to decline across the nation, many state, local and tribal jurisdictions have revised their pandemic mitigation measures and have stopped their mandatory face covering policies and social distancing practices.
The Postal Service has decided to align with these national changes.
Though the organization’s face covering requirements have been rescinded, employees may continue to voluntarily wear a mask or face covering.
The Postal Service will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will modify the face covering policy if needed.
The organization will also continue to provide face coverings for any employee who asks for one.
