Given the rise of the COVID-19 delta variant, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued updated guidance in August to align with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and assist employers in abating hazards. 

The guidance encourages employers to provide paid time off for workers to get vaccinated and to recover from any side effects. It also suggests that employers “consider adopting policies that require workers to get vaccinated or to undergo regular COVID-19 testing—in addition to mask wearing and physical distancing—if they remain unvaccinated.”

While reiterating earlier guidance from January and June, the update includes the CDC’s current recommendations for face coverings and provides a checklist for protecting unvaccinated and high-risk employees. For more information, visit osha.gov.
