Workplace Guidance

On December 16, the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board readopted the Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS) for the second time. These emergency standards include important revisions to make the workplace rules consistent with the latest requirements and recommendations from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). The emergency standards take effect on January 14, 2022, and apply to most workers in California not covered by the Aerosol Transmissible Diseases standard.

For more information regarding these important revisions and requirements, please go to

How to Report COVID-19 Cases to Stanislaus County

To fulfill your Cal/OSHA reporting requirement, please report COVID-19 outbreaks through the Shared Portal for Outbreak Tracking (SPOT). An outbreak is defined as three or more employee COVID-19 cases (who visited the workplace during their infectious period*) in a 14-day period.

  1. Please go to and select Submit a SPOT Intake Form.
  2. After entering your information to the intake form, please select “Yes, I am ready to provide this information” to enter the case’s information.
    1. Be sure to include Test Date and Symptom Onset Date (if applicable).
  3. Once you have submitted the required information, the Public Health department will process it and contact you if we have any questions.

*Infectious period is calculated beginning 2 days before symptom onset date or test date, whichever came first.
