Changes in the COVID-19 requirements are continuing to impact public schools. As we navigate into a second year of COVID-19, there continues to be reactive response requirements for businesses and schools. This presentation will cover the current pandemic focuses impacting the operation of school districts and identify guidance on how to plan and navigate.

There are now two OSHA Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS); the Healthcare ETS primarily impacts health services staff (compliance date was July 2021) , and the Vaccination and Testing ETS will impact districts with 100+ employees (compliance dates are December 5, 2021 and January 6, 2022). The Vaccination and Testing ETS is currently suspended on a stay, pending review.  It is expected that the review process will move quickly, and if the stay is lifted or modified, MNOSHA is expected to proceed with the adoption of the ETS.
