To comply with current COVID-19 safety requirements, businesses and community organizations may need to purchase protective personal equipment (PPE) for their employees. Since June 8, employers have been required to provide appropriate face coverings or masks for all employees who don’t work alone. Requirements vary by type of business. Some workplaces require a higher degree of protection due to the exposure risk associated with job duties.
Whatcom Unified Command has compiled a list of local vendors for businesses that need to acquire PPE.
These state websites offer guidance on face coverings and PPE requirements.
