Vaccination or Testing and Face Covering Policy Template

2021

This template policy is for CAA employers who are subject to the OSHA COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) on Vaccination and Testing (29 CFR 1910.501(d)(1)), and who want to provide a test-out option to employees (i.e., allow employees to submit weekly negative COVID-19 tests and wear a face covering in the workplace, instead of complying with a mandatory vaccination policy). CAAs may use this template to develop a policy that provides employees the choice of getting a COVID-19 vaccine or undergoing regular COVID-19 testing and using a face covering. This template also allows CAAs to mandate vaccines for certain groups of employees, while allowing other employees to choose between vaccinations and getting tested/wearing a mask. 

If your CAA wants to implement a mandatory vaccine policy, please see CAPLAW’s Template Mandatory Vaccination Policy.
