The USPTO is monitoring conditions for all USPTO locations as determined by the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) COVID-19 community levels. Levels can be low, medium, or high. In communities with low or medium transmission levels, masks are optional. However, in communities with high transmission levels, masks will be required in USPTO buildings.For complete information on USPTO COVID-19 protocols and resources, please visit the USPTO’s COVID-19 webpage.
