The health of our businesses and community members is always top of mind, and particularly so during the evolving health and economic circumstances surrounding COVID-19. We have created this site with that in mind, and to help business and community organizations stay informed of the resources, information, and assistance available to them.
To navigate through immediate, evolving, and near-future impacts, the Chamber is and will be working closely with public and private business and economic development partners. We will work to effectively anticipate, respond, and advocate for resources; particularly those that will help mitigate the impacts on your business and our community. Please bookmark this page and check for regular updates. If you are a business or a community organization with resources to offer, you’re invited to share them for us to review and publish: Elora@springfield-chamber.org

OSHA COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing ETS
OSHA is gratified the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit dissolved the Fifth Circuit’s stay of the Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard. OSHA can now once again implement this vital workplace health standard, which will protect the health of workers by mitigating the spread of the unprecedented virus in the workplace.
To account for any uncertainty created by the stay, OSHA is exercising enforcement discretion with respect to the compliance dates of the ETS. To provide employers with sufficient time to come into compliance, OSHA will not issue citations for noncompliance with any requirements of the ETS before January 10 and will not issue citations for noncompliance with the standard’s testing requirements before February 9, so long as an employer is exercising reasonable, good faith efforts to come into compliance with the standard. OSHA will work closely with the regulated community to provide compliance assistance. Read More
