COVID-19 Health Care Worker Protection Act of 2020

This bill requires the Department of Labor to promulgate both an emergency temporary occupational safety or health standard and a permanent standard to protect certain employees from occupational exposure to the coronavirus (i.e., the virus that causes COVID-19). These standards apply to health care sector employees and other employees identified as having an elevated risk for exposure, including employees of states and their political subdivisions.
