Governor Issues Executive Order in Response to COVID-19 Pandemic

Governor Gavin Newsom this week issued Executive Order N-23-21 related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Specifically, the order temporarily allows corporate shareholder meetings to be held virtually during emergencies.

The order additionally authorizes and extension of the COVID-19 safety requirements to protect workers in the COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS). The move comes after the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board (OSHSB) readopted an ETS that is effective from January 14 to April 14, 2022. The Governor’s order enables a subsequent third readoption of the ETS.
