Virginia becomes first state in U.S. to adopt permanent COVID-19 workplace safety standards

Virginia becomes the first state in the U.S. to permanently enact COVID-19 workplace safety and health standards. In addition to requiring all public-facing employees to wear masks, the standards ensure ready access to hand sanitizer and the regular cleaning of common work spaces. Employers must train employees on COVID-19 safety and to develop infectious disease and preparedness response plans. The new permanent regulations include guidelines for returning to work and communicating about employees who test positive and potential exposures.
