As the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently updated its guidance for mitigating the spread of COVID-19, the City of Wichita is revising its safety guidelines for City facilities. A primary purpose of the revised protocols is to protect unvaccinated or otherwise at-risk workers in the workplace. These new guidelines will remain in effect until OSHA provides new recommendations.
Masking and social distancing guidelines for those already vaccinated
City employees and members of the public who have been fully vaccinated by one of the approved COVID-19 vaccines and are not otherwise at-risk, are no longer required to wear a mask within City of Wichita facilities.
Masking and social distancing guidelines for those unvaccinated or otherwise at-risk
For those employees and others visiting City Hall who have NOT been vaccinated, entrance signs for City facilities will strongly encourage them to wear masks while in the building in compliance with OSHA and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance.
Additional information, including guidelines for conference rooms, elevators and other social distancing measures are addressed in the document. Download the document for more information.
