    As discussed at the Roundtable meeting this morning, I have attached the summary document of the proposed Title 8, section 3396.

    Also, it appears that school buses will be part of the regulation. The definition of “Indoor” is “a space that is under a ceiling or overhead covering that restricts airflow and is enclosed along its entire perimeter by walls, doors, windows, … that restrict airflow, whether open or closed.” A bus can certainly fit into that definition. Also, vehicles without and with effective and functioning air conditioning are mentioned in the regulation. Vehicles were on the Board’s minds when drafting the regulation.

    One thing I forgot to mention was that the regulation does not apply to places where employees are teleworking from a location of the employee’s choice, which is not under the control of the employer.

    Thanks for another great roundtable everyone!
