There are people who wear tefillin all day (see related question When did people stop wearing Tefilin all day? and the comments to it.)

For one or two reasons many remove tefillin before Mussaf on Rosh Chodesh.

What do those people who wear tefillin all weekday do on Rosh Chodesh?

I assume they do the same thing as when they visit the bathroom: take them off, and put them back on when they're done. (with mussaf) –  Jake Aug 26 at 13:48
@Jake I assume that is the practice nowadays as well. (I would also assume they were just left on during Musaf back in the day when all-day tefillin was common.) –  Double AA Aug 26 at 13:52

IIRC The Vilna Gaon used to put them back on after Mussaf - looking for a reliable source before answering. have seen people in JSLM do that. –  Danny Schoemann Aug 27 at 12:14
