Is an office area containing employees in cubicle-styled configurations a "shared space"? Are employees required to wear face coverings while inside their cubicle?

A cubicle configuration which allows 6 feet of distance between employees or which contain walls or barriers that separate the individual employees from direct contact with other employees, is not a shared space, provided each cubicle houses a single employee. Hallways or aisles between sections of cubicles would be shared spaces. Employees working inside their own cubicle where there is 6 feet of distance or a physical barrier between other employees, are not required to wear a face covering while inside their cubicle. A face covering will be required whenever the employee in a cubicle-styled space receives other employees or visitors in their space where there is less than 6 feet of distance or no physical barrier between the employee and the visitor.
