On November 4, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) requiring all employers with at least 100 employees to ensure their workers are either fully vaccinated against COVID-19, or submit to weekly COVID-19 testing observed by a third party.
