OSHA Update

On January 29, 2021, OSHA released updated guidance on COVID-19 in the workplace. OSHA was directed to issue updated guidance in President Biden’s January 21 Executive Order. 

OSHA makes clear the updated guidance is not a new standard or regulation and creates no new legal obligations. Rather, OSHA states the updated guidance is advisory in nature and is intended to assist employers in providing a safe and healthful workplace. 

The updated guidance generally addresses workplace best practices, such as face masks, social distancing, hygiene, and COVID-19 Prevention Plans.
