On April 4, Portland Press Herald published an article, "Maine Employers Navigate Complexities of Office Reopening." The article discusses how the process of employees returning to their companies' offices is full of legal, ethical, and health concerns. Employment and labor attorney Tawny Alvarez is quoted in the piece and has presented on the issue businesses are facing with questions about requiring vaccination for their employees.

She states, “We don’t believe it’s in the best interest of employers. Once the state of emergency has been lifted, it’s a really hard argument to say one of the job duties requires you to be immunized.”
