Here’s what you can do:

  • Call 202-224-3121 to connect with the Capitol Hill switchboard.
  • Ask to be connected with your U.S. senator and/or representative.

  • Tell them to demand that Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia issue an Emergency Temporary Standard to protect all essential frontline workers.

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!
