Emergency Regulations

Because of their temporary status, emergency regulations are not included in the Virginia Administrative Code

Pursuant to subdivision (6a) of § 40.1-22 of the Code of Virginia, the Safety and Health Codes Board may adopt an emergency temporary standard to take immediate effect upon publication in a newspaper of general circulation, published in the City of Richmond, Virginia, if the board determines that employees are exposed to grave danger from exposure to substances or agents determined to be toxic or physically harmful or from new hazards, and that such emergency standard is necessary to protect employees from such danger. On July 15, 2020, the board adopted an Emergency Temporary Standard for Infectious Disease Prevention: SARS-CoV-2 Virus That Causes COVID-19 (16VAC25-220), effective July 27, 2020, upon publication in the Richmond Times Dispatch.

16VAC25-220.    Emergency Temporary Standard for Infectious Disease Prevention: SARS-CoV-2 Virus That Causes COVID-19

Effective Date:  July 27, 2020. 
Expiration Date: See 16VAC25-220-20.

 

Pursuant to § 2.2-4011 of the Code of Virginia, agencies, upon consultation with the Attorney General, and at the discretion of the Governor, may adopt emergency regulations that are necessitated by an emergency situation. Agencies may also adopt an emergency regulation when Virginia statutory law or the appropriation act or federal law or federal regulation requires that a regulation be effective in 280 days or less from its enactment, and the regulation is not exempt under the provisions of § 2.2-4006 A 4. The most recent filings are posted at the top of the list.
