New workplace rule...

Masks are required to be worn by individuals within MTA facilities (i.e. offices, crew rooms, depots, barns, stations, non-revenue vehicles, etc.), whether an individual is vaccinated or not, if the MTA facility is within an area that was rated as an area where the level of COVID-19 cases are measured as “high” or “substantial”. (See link https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/?source=email#cases_community for current level ratings by location). Currently, NYC’s five boroughs, Long Island and parts of Westchester and Putnam counties are rated at high or substantial COVID-19 positivity rate. We expect that the list of areas that the CDC rates as being at “high” or “substantial” risk of COVID-19 transmission will be periodically reviewed and updated. Although we will not revise this policy every time the CDC list is updated, we will keep our employees advised of any changes to the list so that they can adjust their mask wearing practices accordingly.

Previously the mask requirement applied only to common areas.
