Memo: NSEA Supports Assembly Bill 246

NSEA supports AB246 requiring businesses to notify workers when there is a COVID-19 exposure in the workplace and requiring the development of a COVID-19 prevention program.
Published: 03/31/2021

In this time, there have been few more challenging times than the one we find ourselves in right now with the COVID-19 pandemic.

NSEA has aggressively engaged in the issue of school safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. Last summer, NSEA supported the work of the Department of Education to develop Nevada’s Path Forward: A Framework for a Safe, Efficient, and Equitable Return to School Buildings. We felt this was the proper framework, along with consultation with local health districts, to safely reopen and operate school buildings this school year.

Safety in other workplaces, especially where large numbers of people gather and potential outbreaks are most likely, is also critically important. As businesses across the state reopen, AB246 is needed to protect public health and workers at those businesses, many of whom are parents to students in our schools. We appreciate that during the COVID pandemic, many workers haven’t had the option to stay home from work. As the state recovers from this pandemic, it is critical that workers can be notified, and a plan be in place to protect employees and keep them safe.
