On November 4, 2021, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued an emergency temporary standard (ETS) mandating large employers to require COVID-19 vaccination or weekly testing of employees. The federal ETS will automatically take effect in states such as Idaho that do not have their own federally approved programs addressing workplace safety. Oregon, Washington, and 19 other states have adopted federally approved workplace safety programs. These states must adopt their own rules that are either identical to or more stringent than those outlined in the ETS.
