Hello, I’m calling from (city, state). 

I urge the Representative/Senator to call on Labor Secretary Scalia to immediately issue an emergency OSHA standard requiring all employers to provide specific and necessary protections to workers to prevent COVID-19 exposure in the workplace. 

Health care workers and all essential frontline workers—including grocery, warehouse, package, delivery, transportation, and sanitation workers—have to be protected!
