The California Occupational Safety & Health Standards Board has unanimously adopted emergency temporary standards to protect workers from hazards related to COVID-19. The temporary standards apply to most workers in California not covered by Cal/OSHA's Aerosol Transmissible Diseases (ATD) standard. The emergency standards, effective November 30, 2020, require employers to evaluate and correct COVID-19 hazards, investigate outbreaks, and much more.
