Virginia rescinds COVID-19 workplace rules

March 25, 2022

On March 21, 2022, the Virginia Safety and Health Codes Board adopted the final revocation of the Virginia Standard for Infectious Disease Prevention of the SARS-CoV-2 Virus That Causes COVID-19 (“Virginia Standard”), 16VAC25-220. The revocation became effective March 23, 2022.

The Virginia Department of Labor and Industry (DOLI) is replacing the revoked standard with a new guidance document on COVID-19 entitled: Guidance for Employers to Mitigate the Risk of COVID-19 to Workers. The document will be published in the Virginia Register on March 28, 2022 (Volume 38: Issue 16) for a 30-day comment period ending April 27, 2022.
