    Re: Occupational Exposure to COVID-19 in Healthcare Settings; OSHA-2020-0004

    Dear Assistant Secretary Parker,

    On behalf of our member medical group practices, the Medical Group Management Association
    (MGMA) writes to express our shared commitment to protect healthcare workers from contracting
    COVID-19. While we appreciate that the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health
    Administration (OSHA) is attempting to protect healthcare workers through a final standard, we believe
    that developing a final standard similar to the original healthcare emergency temporary standard (ETS),
    could cause unintended consequences to medical practices and the millions of patients they treat.
