The COVID-19 vaccine and testing mandate, otherwise known as the Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS), continues to generate concern across the business community. At NATSO, we recognize that the vaccine and testing rule would have a significant, negative impact on truck stops and travel centers, which already suffer from a fragile labor market. To help NATSO members prepare, we invited Robert J. Baker, shareholder, partner at Chartwell Law, on to the podcast to provide information on the OSHA ETS requirements and advice on how to comply with the rule. Baker answered specific questions from NATSO members on religious exemptions, which tests are considered acceptable and more.
