The U.S. Centers for Disease Control recently announced changes in their position regarding COVID-19 and vaccinated individuals. CKF has followed the CDC guidelines throughout the pandemic and, therefore, are updating its position in regards to its face mask policy. State & local jurisdiction mask mandate requirements will override the CDC guidelines as they have previously. Currently, our showrooms in Des Moines & Lenexa no longer have a face covering mandate in effect. Lincoln & Omaha showroom mask updates will expire on May 21 & May 25, respectively.
As a result of the CDC changes, fully vaccinated customers and fully vaccinated employees will no longer be required to wear a mask in CKF facilities, including showrooms, distribution centers, fabrication facilities and offices, unless required by state or local jurisdiction. We will not require proof of vaccination but recommend non-vaccinated customers & employees to wear masks within our facilities and within customer homes.
CKF will remove all “face covering” signage from the showroom entrances once the local mandates expire.
CKF employees must respect a customer’s request to wear a face covering in our facilities and at customer residences. This applies to both vaccinated and non-vaccinated situations.
Thank you for your continued cooperation and support to these changing times.
