Orange County business owners protest workplace masking rules

Orange County business owners protest workplace masking rules

News owners say they’re frustrated with the back and forth and they don’t want to be in a position of tracking which employees have been vaccinated. RELATED: Cal/OSHA withdraws controversial workplace mask rules “We are not healthcare providers,” said one woman at the protest. “We are small businesses who are struggling. I’m not going to tell my employees you have to get vaccinated. … That is not our job. Our job is to keep them employed and safe. But it is not my job to keep a record of their health.”

Wednesday night, the board reversed an earlier decision and backed off on a plan to only let vaccinated workers remove their masks if everyone else in the same area is also vaccinated. The agency’s board has changed positions more than once on whether employees will be required to wear masks in the workplace.

Now the board is signaling it will likely go along with the state’s plan to do away with most masking requirements for vaccinated people in accordance with the latest guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A few dozen people held a protest in Santa Ana Thursday at the regional office of Cal/OSHA, the state’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health.
