The House has passed HR-7340, to require that before bringing teleworking employees back to their regular workplaces agencies would have to publicly report in detail on the personal protective equipment to be provided to employees; protections for employees whose work requires them to be in nonfederal buildings; and potential measures to reverse the reopening should the need arise.
It further passed:
HR-7496, to require agencies to produce contingency plans for responding to a major resurgence of the Coronavirus;
HR-5822, to establish an acquisition professional career program to develop a cadre of acquisition professionals in DHS; and
