Kroger employees will still be required to wear a mask under Michigan Occupational Health and Safety Administration (MIOSHA) emergency rules. For customers who haven’t been vaccinated, Kroger is asking them to keep wearing a mask in stores. In an emailed statement to Free Press on Monday, MIOSHA’s Director of Workplace Safety, Sean Egan, said:
“MIOSHA will soon publish updated workplace rules that reflect recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance on face masks for fully vaccinated people. Until then, MIOSHA will consider compliance with the MDHHS order as a good faith belief to comply when responding to employee complaints or conducting investigations related to COVID-19″.
