Thank you for your continued support. They have seen an increase in the Covid cases in the county with 13 positives in the last 2 weeks.
On January 21, 2021, President Biden issued an Executive Order which declared that ensuring the health and safety of workers is a national priority and a moral imperative. The order directed the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to take action to reduce the risk that workers may contract COVID-19 in the workplace.
OSHA has determined that employee exposure to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, presents a grave danger to workers in healthcare settings where people with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 are reasonably expected to be present. These healthcare workers continue to put their lives on the line helping people who may have COVID-19, and they deserve protection against ongoing exposures in the workplace.
