State Mandate Map & Requirement list

It is always recommended that individuals follow each state's guidelines, maintain social distance, and wear a mask. If you are located in one of these states or plan to travel, always research the current COVID-19 regulations that are in place in that location. Always perform your research if you are traveling to an event to see if you are required to either be fully vaccinated and/or show proof of a negative COVID-19 test.

Be aware that private companies might enact their policy regarding testing and vaccination, and you should consult with your leadership team.

This post does not address local guidance, orders related to customer or patron vaccination status (e.g., “vaccine passports”), narrower mandates specific only to schools or educational institutions, or recommendations that do not impose obligations.

In addition, this post does not address all pending litigation over particular mandates or other significant substantive issues related to employee vaccinations, including potential leaves of absence, discrimination, accommodation, incentives, and privacy concerns. As a result, employers should consult with counsel for guidance on these legal questions and the latest developments.
