The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is advising that essential workers be permitted to return to work following potential COVID-19 exposure, provided they remain symptom-free and take additional safety precautions.
Fatalities and imminent danger exposures related to COVID-19 will be prioritized for Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) inspections, with particular attention given to healthcare organizations and first responders.
A new document from the EEOC states that the ADA and the Rehabilitation Act do not interfere with or prevent employers from following the guidelines and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control on the coronavirus.
