AHLA Releases Updated Safe Stay Guidelines
Today AHLA releases updated Safe Stay Guidelines, which includes our industry policy announced this week lifting the face mask requirement for vaccinated employees following the release of OSHA’s updated business guidance, Protecting Workers: Guidance on Mitigating and Preventing the Spread of COVID-19 in the Workplace.

OSHA’s announcement, as well as our industry’s ongoing commitment to employee vaccinations, allowed our industry to reevaluate the face mask policy for employees and align the Safe Stay Guidelines with the new guidance while we work to welcome our workforce and guests back safety. We will continue to monitor any new developments and work in real time to update our industry protocols and procedures to ensure the safety of our workforce and guests, and support the reopening process. 
While our country is making great strides in defeating the COVID-19 pandemic, we must continue to encourage our friends, family and co-workers to get vaccinated. Please join in supporting the Vaccination Month of Action as we work to achieve the national goal of 70% of adults having at least one vaccine dose by Independence Day (#HotelsCanDoIt).
