• All Workers, Including Social Workers, Deserve Protection from COVID-19

    Despite the fact that thousands of workers have contracted COVID-19 on the job, and hundreds of workers have died from this highly infectious disease, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has failed to issue an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS), based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance to protect all workers from exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace. 

    Congress must take the important step of requiring OSHA to issue mandated protections that will help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace. These protections are critical for social workers and the clients that we serve.
