  • Virginia Revokes COVID-19 Health and Safety Standards

Hey Compliance Warriors!

 

On March 21, 2022, the Virginia Safety and Health Codes Board adopted the final revocation of the Virginia Standard 16VAC25-220 for Infectious Disease Prevention of the SARS-CoV-2 Virus That Causes COVID-19 (“Virginia Standard”). The revocation became effective upon publication in the Richmond Times-Dispatch on March 23, 2022.

 

The Department’s Guidance Document on COVID-19 entitled: Guidance for Employers to Mitigate the Risk of COVID-19 to Workers will be published in the Virginia Register today, March 28, 2022 (Volume 38:Issue 16) for a 30 day comment period in accordance with Va. Code § 2.2-4002.1.B.

 

There will be a public comment forum starting on March 28, 2022 and ending April 27, 2022. Even if the Guidance Document later changes as a result of the public comment period, employers can rely upon the draft Guidance document in the interim.
