New COVID-19 Executive Actions Take Effect.

Are You Prepared?

President Joe Biden has taken action on his “National Strategy for the COVID-19 Response and Pandemic Preparedness.” Here is a closer look at the new executive actions in more detail:

Executive Order on Protecting the Federal Workforce and Requiring Mask-Wearing

  • Mandates that masks be worn in all Federal buildings including the US Capitol, Federal courthouses, post offices and Federal agencies across the country.

  • Federal lands are also covered under the mandate including national parks and Federal monuments.

  • Applies to all Federal employees and Federal contractors (including members of the Armed Forces and National Guard), and persons in Federal Buildings or on Federal lands.

Executive Order on Promoting COVID-19 Safety in Domestic and International Travel

  • Requires masks be worn in airports and on commercial airlines, passenger trains, public boats and ferries and intercity buses.

  • International travelers coming to the U.S. (including Americans returning from abroad) must produce proof of a negative COVID-19 test prior to entry.

Executive Order on Protecting Worker Health and Safety

The goal of this executive action is to safely reopen schools, businesses and travel while protecting workers from COVID-19.

  • Requires OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) to do more to protect workers by revisiting existing safety guidelines and possibly issuing emergency standards.

  • Directs OSHA to update their safety recommendations for businesses within two weeks of the order having been signed.

  • Emergency standards that could be enacted include mandatory mask-wearing, required social distancing, hand-washing breaks and communication with workers during COVID-19 outbreaks.
