Train Derails + LAX Emergency Landing + Tsunami | SoCal In Brief

·5 min read

LOS ANGELES, CA — As the weekend wraps up, we've rounded up all the stories you may have missed Saturday and Sunday to prepare you for Monday.

But before we jump into the Golden State's top stories, residents should know that California's new COVID workplace rules have kicked in to better help protect workers vaccinated against COVID-19.

The revised California Division of Safety and Health rules require employers to provide FDA-approved COVID tests available to exposed employees (whether or not they are vaccinated or asymptomatic) at no cost, and the testing should be done on the clock.

If someone gets exposed to COVID at work (whether or not they are vaccinated) state law requires that employers send them home and maintain their usual pay until they meet the return to work criteria set forth by the workplace rules, CalMatters reported.

Employers will also be required to make sure workers are properly masked. Read more about the revised workplace rules here.
