OSHA issues new COVID-19 guidance for workplaces

As vaccines roll out, workplaces are still dealing with COVID-19 and trying to protect employee and public health. OSHA recently issued updated (and self-described "stronger") guidance on limiting the spread of COVID-19 at work. The guidance addresses a lot of the questions I'm getting from employers, but is not really earth-shattering: 

  • Wear masks; 
  • Distance;
  • Separate and send home potentially infected people; 
  • Improve ventilation;
  • Use PPE;
  • Good hygiene;
  • Routine cleaning and disinfection. 
Employers may appreciate some of the details included in the guidance though - it's definitely worth reading if you're an employer.
