The Placer County Public Health Division aligns with California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Cal/OSHA and will not differ.

As of January 1st, 2023, AB 685 is no longer in effect and non-healthcare employers in Placer County are not required to report COVID-19 outbreaks to Placer County Public Health. On February 3rd, 2023, Cal/OSHA adopted the COVID-19 Prevention Non-Emergency Regulations. Employers are subject to follow the Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Prevention Non-Emergency Regulations or in some workplaces the Cal/OSHA Aerosol Transmissible Disease standards.

Businesses in Placer County are no longer required to report outbreaks to Placer County Public Health but must report major outbreaks to Cal/OSHA. Major outbreaks are defined as 20 or more employee COVID-19 cases in an exposed group that visited the worksite during their infectious period within a 30-day period.

Please review the information below for additional information/assistance with Cal/OSHA requirements.

If you have additional questions related to the workplace and COVID-19, please contact Cal/OSHA for further guidance. If you are affiliated with a healthcare or congregate facility, please view those requirements here.
