AGC of California provides updates on COVID-19 regulations

On Feb. 28, Gov. Gavin Newsom issued a proclamation terminating the California’s COVID-19 state of emergency, as previously announced in October.

What does this mean?

Any statewide executive orders signed by Gov. Newsom related to the COVID-19 state of emergency are no longer in effect as of Feb. 28, 2023.

Supplemental Paid Sick Leave?

California Supplemental Paid Sick Leave expired at the end of 2022. Following the sunset of Supplemental Paid Sick Leave, the city of Los Angeles and the city of Long Beach since rescinded local COVID-19 paid leave requirements.

Local jurisdictions, however, have authority to leave supplemental paid sick leave ordinances in place.

Cal/OSHA Regulations and Requirements?

On Feb. 3, Cal/OSHA’s COVID-19 Prevention Non-Emergency Regulations went into effect. The regulations will apply to California employers for two years, except for the recordkeeping requirements, which will expire in three years.

We have a one-hour, on-demand webinar in partnership with Fisher Phillips LLP that explains this regulation in detail and how this applies specifically to the construction industry. Simply create a free account to access our on-demand courses.

Additionally, we have a COVID-19 Prevention Plan template and a toolbox talk that answers frequently asked questions – both are completely free to use! To answer any additional questions you may have, contact our Safety & Regulatory Manager Tresten Keys at keyst@agc-ca.org.
