New Mask Policy - May 17, 2021
On Thursday, May 13th the CDC issued updated guidelines concerning the wearing of masks while indoors. Peach State has been following CDC guidelines throughout the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak regarding proper health and safety protocols. Considering the new guidelines established by the CDC the following mask policies are now in effect in all PSTC locations:
- IF you are fully vaccinated you are not required to wear a mask while in a Peach State facility (See exceptions below). The CDC defines fully vaccinated as two weeks after your final vaccine dose.
- If you have been diagnosed by a medical professional as having had the COVID-19 virus within the last 5 months you are not required to wear a mask. If it has been more than 5 months you will need to be vaccinated or you will need to resume wearing a mask.
- If you prefer to wear a mask, or for our employee to wear a mask, please make that request to the employee.
- If one of our location is subject to a local ordinance that has different requirements that location will have those requirements posted.
Peach State expects all customers to act with integrity and be honest as to your vaccination status. We also expect our employees to respect the views of others if they elect to not be vaccinated and continue wearing a mask.
