Rogge Dunn Quoted in Dallas Morning News About Mask Policies of Major Retailers in Dallas

Rogge Dunn was recently quoted in a Dallas Morning News article regarding the mask policies of major retailers in the Dallas area.

In response to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott rescinding statewide COVID-19 policies, retailers such as Walmart, NorthPark, and Best Buy announced they will still require employees and customers to wear masks. Wednesday, March 10, marks the first day that the statewide mask mandate is no longer in effect and businesses are allowed to operate at 100% capacity.

In the Dallas Morning News article, Rogge Dunn said he was surprised that in conservative Texas, the mask policies of major retailers are still going to be in effect. Rogge Dunn said that since companies such as Walmart, NorthPark, and Best Buy are major employers, they have an obligation under Occupational Safety and Health Administration rules to provide a safe workplace for their employees.

“If an employer doesn’t take measures, they can be sued and have workers compensation claims,” Dunn said. “And if employers can help prevent spread, they won’t have as many employees out sick.”
