We want to assure you that we take the health and well-being of our community, clients, co-workers and all of our family members very seriously. Like you, we have closely monitored the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We closed our offices in March of 2020 to comply with the relevant state orders regarding the pandemic. As Boston, Massachusetts and California have slowly lifted restrictions, we have begun allowing employees to work in the offices while wearing masks and observing strict Covid protocols.
As of Saturday, May 29, 2021, the City of Boston and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts have lifted all capacity limits on offices, as well as ending the mask mandate. The Commonwealth’s State of Emergency terminates on June 15, 2021. California has also announced that its mask mandate and capacity limits will end on June 15th.
Vaccination and Mask Policies
Thornton Law Firm will require masks be worn by all employees or visitors unless (a) they are fully vaccinated and b) more than 2 weeks have passed since their last vaccine dose.
Thornton Law Firm employees may now go maskless in the office if they are two weeks past their last vaccine dose. Employees are required to show their vaccination card in person at the time of their first day of return to the office. There are no exceptions to this policy.
Employees must still wear masks when in the presence of clients or firm guests unless the client(s) or guest(s) are also fully vaccinated, and it has been more than 2 weeks since their last dose.
Firm guests and clients may go maskless if it has been more than 2 weeks since their last vaccination dose and they provide proof of vaccination.
Employees, clients, and guests should not e-mail photographs of their vaccine cards. Instead, wait until you are next in the office to show your card. It is acceptable for a client or guest to show their card to the Thornton employee with whom they are meeting.
Those that are not yet vaccinated must continue to wear masks in the office at all times in common areas (any location other than an office). Those not yet vaccinated should strongly consider the use of an N-95 (or equivalent) mask when present in the office.
