Isaac Wiles Safety Protocols for COVID-19

Our firm’s number one concern is the safety of our employees and our clients.  On May 14th 2021, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) announced that “fully vaccinated” people would not need to wear masks, except in public transport, nursing homes, health care offices, and prisons.   As defined by the CDC, “fully vaccinated” means one dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine or two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, plus an additional 14 days following the last shot.

The CDC Guidelines permit businesses to determine the Covid-19 safety protocols appropriate for their employees, clients and customers. Accordingly, IW has adopted the following policies for its employees, clients and any visitors to our offices regarding Covid-19 safety:

Choosing Safe Activities CDC Guidelines

  • If you are fully vaccinated, you do not have to wear a mask in our offices, even if you move around the offices or go work with someone else in their private office or in a conference room.
  • If you are not fully vaccinated, you must wear a mask in all public spaces (lobby, hallways, utility rooms, kitchen, restrooms, conference rooms) of our offices.
  • If you are vaccinated, but want to wear a mask, please wear one.
  • If you wish someone (employee or client) you are working with to wear a mask, please ask that person, and we will expect a cheerful and graceful response.
  • There will be no peer pressure or retaliation if you choose to continue to mask and stay socially distanced.  The reactions to this challenge are widely varied, and passionately held.  We will be respectful as we should be.
  • Hand sanitizer will still be readily available around our offices.
  • Larger gatherings (exceeding ten people) will be permitted subject to the best available safety practices at that time.

We want to implement best practices to stay healthy. Please see the helpful chart provided by the CDC:
