AUTHORITY FOR MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM:
    The authority to collect this information derives from General Duty 
Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act 
of 1970 (29 U.S.C. 654), Executive Order 12196, Occupational safety and 
health programs for Federal employees (Feb. 26, 1980), OMB Memorandum 
M-20-23 Aligning Federal Agency Operations with the National Guidelines 
for Opening Up America Again (Apr. 20, 2020), and the National Defense 
Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2017 (5 U.S.C. 6329c(b)). Information 
will be collected and maintained in accordance with the Americans with 
Disabilities Act of 1990 (42 U.S.C. 12101 et seq.)

PURPOSE(S) OF THE SYSTEM:
    The information in the system is collected to assist the CFTC with 
maintaining a safe and healthy workplace and to protect CFTC staff 
working on-site from risks associated with a public health emergency 
(as defined by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and 
declared by its Secretary), such as a pandemic or epidemic. To that 
end, the CFTC may develop and institute additional safety measures in 
response to a public health emergency. These measures may include 
instituting activities such as requiring CFTC staff and visitors to 
provide information before being allowed access to a CFTC facility, 
medical screening, and contact tracing. Contact tracing conducted by 
CFTC staff will involve collecting information about CFTC staff and 
visitors who are exhibiting symptoms or who have tested positive for an 
infectious disease in order to identify and notify other CFTC staff and 
visitors with whom they may have come into contact and who may have 
been exposed.

CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:
    Individuals covered by this system include CFTC staff (e.g., 
political appointees, employees, detailees, contractors, consultants, 
interns, and volunteers) and visitors to a CFTC facility during a 
public health emergency, such as a pandemic or epidemic.

CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:
    This system maintains information collected about CFTC staff and 
visitors accessing CFTC facilities during a public health emergency, 
including a pandemic or epidemic. It maintains biographical information 
collected about CFTC staff and visitors that includes, but is not 
limited to, their

name, contact information, whether they are in a high-risk category or 
provide dependent care for individuals in a high-risk category, and 
recent travel. It maintains health information collected about CFTC 
staff and visitors to a CFTC facility, that includes, but is not 
limited to, temperature checks, expected or confirmed test results, 
dates, symptoms, potential or actual exposure to a pathogen, 
immunizations and vaccination information, or other medical history 
related to the treatment of a pathogen or communicable disease. It 
maintains information collected about CFTC staff and visitors to a CFTC 
facility necessary to conduct contact tracing that includes, but is not 
limited to, the dates when they visited the facility, the locations 
that they visited within the facility (e.g., office and cubicle 
number), the duration of time spent in the facility, whether they may 
have potentially come into contact with a contagious person while 
visiting the facility, travel dates and locations, and a preferred 
contact number. It maintains information about emergency contacts for 
CFTC staff that includes, but is not limited to, the emergency 
contact's name, phone number, and email address.

RECORD SOURCE CATEGORIES:
    The information in this system is collected in part directly from 
the individual or from the individual's emergency contact. Information 
is also collected from security systems monitoring access to CFTC 
facilities, such as video surveillance and turnstiles, human resources 
systems, emergency notification systems, and federal, state, and local 
agencies assisting with the response to a public health emergency. 
Information may also be collected from property management companies 
responsible for managing office buildings that house CFTC facilities.
