The Safety and Health Codes Board (SHCB) held a meeting on August 26, 2021 and adopted as final, revised amendments to the VOSH Standard (VS) for Infectious Disease Prevention of the SARS-CoV-2 Virus That Causes COVID-19.

PLEASE NOTE THAT BEFORE THESE REVISIONS TO THE VOSH STANDARD (CHAPTER 220) CAN BECOME EFFECTIVE, IT HAS TO UNDERGO A REVIEW BY THE GOVERNOR in accordance with the language in 16VAC25-220-20.A  which states:

1. This chapter shall take effect upon review by the Governor, and if no revisions are requested, filing with the Registrar of Regulations and publication in a newspaper of general circulation published in the City of Richmond, Virginia.

2. If the Governor’s review results in one or more requested revisions to the chapter, the Safety and Health Codes Board shall reconvene to approve, amend, or reject the requested revisions.

3. If the Safety and Health Codes Board approves the requested revisions to the chapter as submitted, the chapter shall take effect upon filing with the Registrar of Regulations and publication in a newspaper of general circulation published in the City of Richmond, Virginia.

4. Should the Governor fail to review the chapter under A1 of this section within thirty days of its approval by the Safety and Health Codes Board, the Board will not need to reconvene to take further action, and the chapter shall take effect upon filing with the Registrar of Regulations and publication in a newspaper of general circulation published in the City of Richmond, Virginia.
