ABC general counsel Littler Mendelson P.C. has written an article that covers the following questions:
- Is COVID-19 Considered an “Illness” Under OSHA’s Recordkeeping Rules?
- When Is a COVID-19 Case Considered Recordable?
- When Is a COVID-19 Case Reportable?

Additional information can be found on the OSHA webpage.
ABC is aware of concerns expressed by ABC members on this issue. Staff will continue to work with OSHA and provide future updates.
