Department of Labor and Industry Announces 7 Day Comment Period to Consider Revisions to the Proposed Amendments to the Final Permanent Standard for Infectious Disease Prevention (FPS) of the SARS-Co-V-2 Virus That Causes COVID-19

16 VAC25-220

 

The Department of Labor and Industry (DOLI) has consulted with the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) about whether REVISIONS should be recommended to the Board's Proposed Amendments to the FPS originally adopted on June 29, 2021, in response to the CDC's updated guidance for fully vaccinated people issued on July 27, 2021 (requirement in certain situations for fully vaccinated employees to wear face coverings in areas of substantial or high transmission).  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated-guidance.html

 

DOLI and VDH are in agreement that some REVISIONS should be recommended to the Board along with the Governor's amendment to 16VAC25-220-10.E.(https://www.doli.virginia.gov/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/Summary-of-Governor-Northams-Review-of-Proposed-Amendments-to-16VAC25-220-7.1.2021.pdf). Please note there are several recommended revisions unrelated to the CDC's updated guidance to address error corrections, non-substantive changes, and a limited number of substantive changes.
