    One of the most important decisions employers will need to make by the December 6 effective date for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)’s COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) is whether to allow all (or if an employer desires, only certain classes of) employees to wear an approved face covering and produce a negative COVID-19 test at least weekly in order to return to a company worksite. read more

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) posted an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) mandating that all private employers with 100 or more employees ensure their employees are COVID-19 fully vaccinated before entering the employer’s worksite. Alternatively, at the employer’s choice, employers may allow  unvaccinated employees to come to the worksite if they wear an approved face covering and produce a negative COVID-19 test at least weekly. read more

    We may not be at a tipping point yet, but there has definitely been a shift in employer attitudes toward vaccine mandates. We just closed a survey on this topic, and of the 372 US employers responding, 14% require (or plan to require) all employees returning to their worksites to be vaccinated, with another 15% requiring vaccinations for certain job functions such as business travel or customer contact. Just three months ago, in a survey of 425 employers that closed in May, only 3% of respondents planned to require employees to be vaccinated and only 8% were even considering it.

    We want to bring you up-to-date on the status of the NAWHC annual forum in Chicago on September 9 and 10th. We intend to conduct this program in-person and provide for all the COVID-19 precautions set up by the City of Chicago and the MidAmerica Club. 

    As of yesterday, the city of Chicago has indicated that travelers from 12 states will need to be vaccinated or be quarantined -see the announcement here: Also, the city is recommending, but not requiring, masks for inside activities. We will be providing masks at our registration desk, if needed.

    We will be exploring virtual options for the event should circumstances get much worse, but at this point we only intend to have an in-person format.

    We currently have over 100 registered for the program, with no registrant cancellations to date. If your plans change due to your concerns about personal safety, please let us know. We plan to have a safe and enjoyable event and hope you will be able to join us.

    Thank you for your participation and support of NAWHC.  We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!

    In March 2020, the National Assn. of Worksite Health Centers (NAWHC) conducted a benchmarking survey of employers and unions on the impact and challenges of COVID-19 on their onsite and near-site health centers, the centers’ services and staff. In March, states were requiring or recommending most businesses close or have their employees work remotely to avoid spreading the virus. To see how the situation has changed as people get back to work and employers adjust to the imminent arrival of vaccine, NAWHC conducted a survey in November 2020 to update the earlier results.  Results can be viewed here.
