Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Legislation Proposed for Phase Four of the US Congressional Response to COVID-19
US lawmakers are indicating that phase four of the US Congressional Response to COVID-19 will include provisions for the federal government to provide health care workers with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Lawmakers will push the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to issue an emergency temporary standard to shield health care workers from the virus. It will be late April before Congress will consider the bill. We will continue to monitor phase four and provide further updates.
