Employer Update - COVID-19 Workplace Standards

On June 17, Cal/OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board for the State of California, approved revised California workplace requirements (COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards [PDF] [ETS]). These changes were made in conjunction with California moving "Beyond the Blueprint", fully reopening the economy and lifting most of the public COVID-19 restrictions on June 15.

These updated workplace regulations are in line with the state's latest COVID-19 public health guidance, which takes into account current levels of COVID-19 and vaccination rates. The updates include changes to face coverings and physical distancing requirements.

Visit Cal/OSHA ETS for workplace requirements.

Businesses can learn more in Cal/OSHA's Frequently Asked Questions, or see a handy PowerPoint overview in the Alameda County Public Health Employer Update (PDF). Employers can also contact the Cal/OSHA District Office by phone at 510-622-2916 or email Cal/OSHA with questions. Information is available in multiple languages.
