Emergency COVID regulations were adopted for employers in the state of California. These regulations, designed to further protect the workforce and set clear COVID safety guidance, were quickly drafted and adopted. Additional discussion will be necessary to make adjustments as appropriate to ensure compliance. There will be one such discussion taking place on Friday, December 18th; however if you have any feedback based on these regulations or even general concerns, please let the policy team know as soon as possible so that your concerns can be included in that meeting.
In short, the regulations include:
- a written COVID-19 prevention plan,
- robust and detailed record keeping,
- and notification procedures when outbreaks in a workplace do occur, among others.
