How can an agency encourage the use of face-coverings by employees where appropriate?

Agencies may recommend that employees follow certain safety procedures, such as using a face covering, in order to help ensure the health and safety of the employee and their coworkers. Consistent with the U.S. Federal Government’s Guidelines for Reopening America Again, agencies are to strive to create workspaces where appropriate social distance can be maintained.  In situations where maintenance of such distance is challenging, however, agencies should consider encouraging employees to wear face coverings.  Employees are free to wear appropriate (as deemed by agency management) face coverings at all times within the workplace.
