This is a rapidly evolving situation. This fact sheet will be updated online as needed. See links at the end of this fact sheet for the most up-to-date information.

COVID-19 is spreading rapidly within the United States. The outbreak has been declared a national emergency in the United States and a global pandemic by the World Health Organization. This has changed the employment landscape across the country. As COVID-19 continues to spread, employers and employees should know about laws and recommendations that govern COVID-19 in the workplace.

An update from Building and Construction Trades Division Director Marion (Bubba) Davis:

Despite the national emergency, some projects at energy plants nationwide are continuing.  Teamsters provide bus transportation at these construction sites and therefore extra cleaning has been undertaken for the buses in order to comply with CDC guidelines. In some cases, we have increased the number of busses in order to comply with social distancing suggestions.
