On November 4, 2021 the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued an emergency temporary standard (ETS) to minimize the risk of COVID-19 in the workplace. The ETS requires large employers (over 100 employees) to comply with new vaccination and testing requirements. Smugglers’ Notch employs more than 100 employees and is subject to the ETS.
The ETS mandates that all employees at Smugglers’ Notch must either be fully vaccinated or be tested weekly (no more than 7 days apart) for COVID-19 and present proof of testing. Testing is expected to begin no later than January 4, 2022.
On November 12, 2021, OSHA has suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the ETS pending future developments in litigation following the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit granted a motion to stay. Smugglers’ will monitor developments and follow OSHA recommendations in the meantime. CLOSE
