Updated COVID-19 Guidance for Nevada Businesses and New OSHA COVID-19 Healthcare Emergency Temporary Standard

This guidance supersedes previous Nevada Occupational Safety and Health Administration (NV OSHA) COVID-19 guidance released on July 22, 2021.

COVID-19 Healthcare Emergency Temporary Standard

NV OSHA adopted the COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard for healthcare workplaces effective on July 1, 2021. Employers must comply with most provisions within 14 days of the effective date, and with the remaining provisions within 30 days. This document provides an overview of the ETS and links to resources to help businesses comply.

Updated NV OSHA COVID-19 Guidance for Other Businesses

This document also includes updated NV OSHA guidance for businesses not covered by the ETS.

On July 27, 2021, the Governor issued Declaration of Emergency Directive #047 which requires all persons in counties with substantial or high community transmission rates according to the CDC, whether vaccinated or not, to wear a face covering while in public indoor spaces. In addition, Declaration of Emergency Directives #024, #028, #044, and #045 require Nevada businesses to comply with guidelines promulgated by NV OSHA to minimize the risk of spread of COVID-19. NV OSHA is also responsible for enforcing all violations of its guidelines, protocols, and regulations promulgated pursuant to the Governor’s Directives and local directives affecting employees.
