StaySafeMN INFORMATION - Updated 04/21/2022
The pandemic is an ever changing situation. It is difficult to disseminate the most up-to-date information in a timely manner. We want to reassure you that the Board of Chiropractic Examiners (MBCE) is remaining focused on our mission of public health and protection during these unprecedented times.
The MBCE encourages all chiropractors to stay up-to-date with recommendations and protocols established by the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local health departments in regard to COVID-19.
Policy #1442 Enterprise Face Covering Policy Rescinded
Effective Monday, February 28, the State rescinded its enterprise face covering policy, HR/LR policy #1442. If appropriate, building signage can be removed.
This change was done in conjunction with the CDC’s updated masking guidance, which was released last Friday. Under the new guidance, nearly 70% of the U.S. population lives in an area considered to be low or medium risk, and residents there are advised they can go indoors without masks.
As a reminder, if agencies have adopted agency-level face covering policies, they are permitted to continue enforcing those policies – or adopting new policies. Agencies that are subject to CMS face covering requirements must continue to comply with those requirements. And even if there is no agency-level policy or other requirement, employees who feel more comfortable doing so are welcome to continue wearing a face covering.
