Federal Guidance Update

September 21, 2020

The last few weeks have seen seismic shifts in the COVID-19 workplace safety landscape. Below is a state-by-state summary of some of the most important changes (and continued requirements):

CDC Update

Over the weekend, the CDC reversed its guidance on COVID-19 testing for persons without symptoms who have had close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19. The guidance now states that such persons should be tested for COVID-19. Previously, the guidance stated that such persons “do not necessarily need a test.”

The CDC also issued new guidance relating to when to tell close contacts they may have been exposed to COVID-19.

The updated guidance also makes clear that effectiveness of gaiters and face shields are unknown.
