Last month, Virginia became the first state in the nation to issue mandatory COVID-19 workplace safety rules designed to reduce COVID-19 infections in the workplace with the Commonwealth’s adoption of the Emergency Temporary Standard (“ETS”).

Theses guidelines went into affect on July 27, 2020.

On Thursday, August 27 workplaces not following the guidelines could be penalized with fines and/or closure for repeat offenders.
