Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Biden Administration Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) has Iowa employers seeking to comply with the new federal regulation and state law. We've provided a list of resources from ABI members, partner organizations and OSHA on this page for a one-stop-shop. If you have specific questions about how to navigate the new standard, please contact us.

The global pandemic challenged your organization in completely new ways. We're here to support you. Sharing these resources is one way we’re helping. If you need answers to specific questions or help with an issue involving government, please contact us.
