CDC Says Not To Argue With Anti-Mask Customers
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently issued updated guidance recommending certain practices for businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the guidance, the agency recommends that retail workers should not “argue with a customer if they make threats or become violent,” in reference to “anti-mask” customers.
Furthermore, the agency says that employees should not “attempt to force anyone who appears upset or violent to follow COVID-19 prevention policies or other policies or practices related to COVID-19.”
The guidance adds that should employees be confronted with threats or violence; they should remove themselves and find a safe area.
