OSHA Not Amending Healthcare ETS

OSHA Not Amending Healthcare ETS

1 minute read

OSHA will not make changes to its healthcare emergency temporary standard (ETS) after the CDC reversed its face mask guidance. The CDC recommends that fully vaccinated individuals should wear a mask in public, indoor settings in areas where there is a high COVID-19 transmission.

OSHA determined that neither the CDC’s guidance on health care settings nor the underlying science and data on COVID-19 in health care settings has materially changed in a way to necessitate changes to the current ETS. So ETS face mask exceptions under the standard will still apply.

Health care employers should continue to monitor the OSHA website for updates on how changes in COVID-19 transmission affect agency policy and guidance. OSHA will continue to assess the need for changes monthly.
