OSHA COVID Prevention Recommendations Updated 

  • Paid time off to get  vaccinated (ARPA tax credits are potentially available through September 2021 for this purpose for businesses with fewer than 500 employees);
  • Instruct workers who are infected with COVID-19, unvaccinated workers who had close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, and all workers with COVID-19 symptoms to stay home from work; 
  • Require physical distancing of at least six feet for unvaccinated workers and “at-risk” workers in all common areas;
  • Use plastic sheeting or solid barriers in areas where physical distancing is not possible;
  • Provide free face masks to unvaccinated and “at-risk” workers, and PPE or respirators in workplaces where that equipment is necessary, and U.S. OSHA notes that workplaces where persons who are deaf or hard of hearing are present should consider providing masks with clear plastic over the mouth area to facilitate lip-reading;
  • Utilize teleworking or remote working while staggering work schedules  to limit contact.
  • Educate workers on applicable COVID-19 policies and practices at the worksite, using signs and language accessible to the workers;
  • Request or suggest that unvaccinated customers, visitors and guests wear masks, even if the state or local jurisdiction does not require it;
  • Maintain HVAC ventilation systems including using filters with MERV-13 or higher rating and cleaning/servicing at least quarterly;
  • Perform routine workplace cleaning and disinfection, and clean and disinfect the workplace within 24 hours if someone is suspected or confirmed to have had COVID-19;
  • Record and report COVID-19 infections to OSHA and public health authorities;
  • Establish an anonymous system for workers to report COVID-19 concerns and ensure no retaliation is taken against any workers for reporting concerns; and
  • Follow all other U.S. OSHA mandatory requirements as well as all applicable federal, state, and local laws and rules.
