Highlights of the ETS include:
- Employees must be vaccinated by January 4, 2022
- Employees that remained unvaccinated must wear masks and produce a verified negative COVID-19 test to their employer on at least a weekly basis
- Employees with a positive COVID-19 test must be removed from the workplace
