Area(s) of Interest: Licensing & Regulatory Issues 

On November 30, 2020, California approved Cal/OSHA emergency temporary standards on COVID-19 infection prevention. These new temporary standards apply to most workers in California not covered by Cal/OSHA’s Aerosol Transmissible Diseases (ATD) standard. The emergency temporary standards became effective immediately, and generally require employers to develop and implement a written COVID-19 emergency prevention program.

The California Medical Association (CMA) has added information about these new standards and their applicability to physician practices to the COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions database. CMA will continue to provide updates as they become available, including any clarification on the applicability of these new standards to medical practices.
