COVID outbreaks in CA workplaces more than doubled between June and July, data shows

Recently released state data shows that COVID-19 outbreaks in the workplace more than doubled between June and July.

According to the Sacramento Bee, California had 459 workplace outbreaks in July, compared to 217 in June.

A panel is now reportedly looking into possibly revising the state's COVID-19 workplace safety standard, due to the dominance of the delta variant.

Right now the state's workplace rule does not have a physical distancing requirement and does not require fully vaccinated workers to wear masks.

Major changes, however, are not expected until at least December.
