With vaccination rates on a rise, the California Department of Occupational Safety and Health (“Cal-OSHA”) have proposed revisions to the COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standards (“ETS”). On May 20, 2021, the California Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board is expected to decide on whether to send the draft revisions to the Office of Administrative Law (“OAL”). If these revisions are received by the OAL, they are only required to allow 5 calendar days for submission of comments and 10 calendar days for review before filing with the Secretary of State. Therefore, the potential new COVID-19 emergency regulation amendments could become effective by early June.
