California’s Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board (Cal-OSHA) voted on December 15, 2022, to adopt non-emergency COVID-19 Prevention regulations. The regulations are anticipated to take effect January 2023 once approved by the Office of Administrative Law. The regulations will remain in effect for two years after their effective date, except for the recordkeeping subsections that will remain in effect for three years. The non-emergency regulations include some of the same requirements found in current COVID-19 ETS, as well as new provisions.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey delivered his farewell address to Arizonans last week, giving thanks to Arizonans for the last eight years he’s spent in office and listing his achievements.

The governor said that when he took office, the state faced a billion dollar deficit, the economy was flat, and its schools were “mired in lawsuits.” He said his administration focused on one common goal for Arizona, which was “Opportunity for all.”
