What do I have to do if I am exempt from the OSHA ETS?

Even though you are exempt from the OSHA ETS you still would be responsible for meeting the safe workplace requirements under the OSHA General Duty Clause which includes having a COVID-19 plan. We recommend using the COVID-19 Plan template provided in the OSHA-ETS, and removing the items that are specific to the ETS. To assist with what you as an exempt practice would need to include we have provided a checklist for exempt vs non-exempt.

News & Knowledge
All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
