Welcome to #WorkforceWednesday. This week, we look at a new COVID-19 quarantine timeline and stricter workplace safety regulations in California.

CDC Permits Shortened Quarantine Periods

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides that a shorter COVID-19 quarantine may be permissible for asymptomatic people who may have been exposed to the virus, now accepting 10 days of quarantine or seven days following a negative test. However, because state and local public health authorities determine the quarantine options applicable in their jurisdictions, employers must still review and comply with local guidance regarding quarantine periods.

CAL/OSHA Emergency COVID-19 Prevention Regulations Take Effect

California has joined Virginia, Oregon, and Michigan in implementing stricter and more demanding COVID-19 regulations for businesses. The California emergency regulations took immediate effect November 30, and require a written prevention program, no-cost tests for employees during work hours, rules around outbreaks, and more.

NY Amends WARN Requirements

The New York Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act now requires NY employers to send advance notice of a NY WARN Act triggering event to a significantly expanded list of government entities, including the school district and each governmental locality that provides emergency services to the affected site of employment.
