OSHA recently released an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) on COVID-19 covering settings where employees provide healthcare services or healthcare support services. Contractors providing healthcare support services, such as equipment and facility maintenance, may have to comply with several provisions in the ETS. However, the standard does not apply to “well-defined hospital ambulatory care settings” where all employees are fully vaccinated, all non-employees are screened prior to entry, and people with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 are not permitted to enter those settings. Contractors whose employees are not providing healthcare support services are exempt from the ETS. However, OSHA has updated its guidelines for employers based on the most current guidance from the CDC. Employers are urged to comply with the updated guidelines.
