Employment Law Updates

The Safety and Health Codes Board of the Virginia Department of Labor convened on February 16, 2022 to discuss whether there is a continued need for the “Permanent Standard for Infectious Disease Prevention of the SARS-CoV-2 Virus that Causes Covid-19”. By a 7-3 vote, the Board voted to withdraw the standard, following the recommendation of the Virginia Occupational Safety and Health Administration that a “grave danger” to workers no longer exists and the standard is no longer legally justified. There will be a 30-day comment period before a final vote will be held on the future of the standard. We will keep you updated regarding developments with Virginia’s Permanent Standard.
