New OSHA Guidance On Unvaccinated Employees And Ways To Protect All Employees

The CDC recently updated recommendations for fully vaccinated people to reduce their risk of becoming infected with the Delta variant and potentially spreading it to others by:

— Wearing a mask in public indoor settings in areas of high transmission;

— Choosing to wear a mask regardless of level of transmission, particularly if individuals are at risk or have someone in their household who is at increased risk of severe disease or not fully vaccinated; and

— Getting tested 3-5 days following a known exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 and wearing a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days after exposure or until a negative test result.

In OSHA’s updated guidance, analogous recommendations are adopted.
