Update on COVID-19 OSHA ETS Guidelines
On Thursday, Jan 13, the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the Biden Administration's OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) Guidelines which had required all COVID-19 unvaccinated faculty, staff and student employees to wear face coverings indoors beginning Jan. 10. With the Supreme Court's ruling, this guideline will no longer apply to unvaccinated employees as part of their Baylor employment. Please note that the University's interim policy requiring face coverings, regardless of vaccination status, continues to apply through the end of this month. Read more.
