CA's Revised COVID-19 Emergency Temp. Standards Withdrawn

Cal-OSHA logo

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) Standards Board held a special meeting on June 9 to consider the latest guidance regarding face-masking from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).

As a result, the standards board voted unanimously to withdraw the revisions to Cal/OSHA’s COVID-19 prevention emergency temporary standards that the board had approved on June 3, which had been sent to the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) for review.

The revised emergency standards that were approved on June 3 will no longer go into effect since the OAL will not complete its 10-day review and approval process. Cal/OSHA will review the new mask guidance and bring any recommended revisions to the board. The standards board could consider new revisions as early as June 17 (its regularly scheduled meeting).

In the meantime, employers will remain governed by the protections adopted in November 2020.

Additionally, a December 2020 article posted by the League provides a detailed summary of the November 2020 emergency standards.    

The California Credit Union League will continue to monitor this matter and provide further updates to credit unions once more information is available.
