New COVID-19 Regulations
Just when you thought it was over. Well for most of us in other states it really is kind of is over. The news outlets don’t talk about it as much, workplaces and restaurants have become more laxed, and we don’t wear masks everywhere we go. That’s right! We’re talking about Covid-19 and workplace regulations.
For those of us who live and work in California, on February 4, 2023, the State of California, Department of Industrial Relations released the COVID-19 Prevention Non-Emergency Regulations to Protect Workers from COVID-19 measures. Within it, the new measures layout:
- COVID workplace measures
- Close Contact Definitions
- Infectious Period Definitions
- COVID Testing; and
Cal/OSHA is the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health within the Department of Industrial Regulations and is “updating resources to assist employers with understanding their obligations required by the COVID-19 Prevention Regulations.”
As noted, these new regulations went into effect February 4, 2023, and will remain in effect until February 3, 2025. The recordkeeping requirements will stay in effect one year longer ending on February 3, 2026. To see the full news release with extra resources to help you as an employer, CLICK HERE NOW!
