A: Unvaccinated adults with PH work should remotely whenever possible. You should consider the infection rate in your community, health of household members, financial situation and job type if you decide to go into your workplace. PH patients might be eligible for protections under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), such as reasonable accommodations to perform the essential functions of their jobs. Find out more information about working with PH, including your rights.

If you are fully vaccinated, the CDC guidelines indicate that being indoors at work would be safe. Employers will be developing their own guidelines in terms of masks, telework etc. Many businesses are gradually returning to in-person work on a voluntary basis.  This may evolve over time as more and more people within communities get vaccinated and the infection rate drops.

Visit CDC for new guidance for unvaccinated and fully vaccinated people.
