Description

Employers; reporting outbreaks of COVID-19. Requires employers to report for each worksite with 30 or more employees, or for any multi-employer worksite with 30 or more combined employees, to the local health department when the worksite has had five or more confirmed cases of the COVID-19 virus. The employer is required to make such report within 24 hours of becoming aware of such cases. The bill requires the State Department of Health to compile such reports and to make a weekly report available to the public with the compiled information. Read the Bill »

Looking for Vaccine Info?

When it comes to health, everyone wants reliable, up-to-date information. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has information that can help answer questions you might have about vaccines.

Richmond Sunlight prohibits comments that spread propaganda about COVID-19 or COVID vaccines. We will promptly delete any claims that COVID isn’t serious, or claims that vaccines are unsafe or ineffective.
