Occupational Exposure to COVID-19; Emergency Temporary Standard, 38232-38233 [2021-15326]

Download as PDF 38232 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 136 / Tuesday, July 20, 2021 / Rules and Regulations Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 This direct final rule does not impose a new collection requirement under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3521). This direct final rule does not impose new recordkeeping or reporting requirements on State or local governments, individuals, businesses, or organizations. Although the direct final rule is applicable to an existing collection of information, the rule merely clarifies certain recordkeeping requirements that already apply to registrants using DEA Form 222 and therefore does not impose any new collection of information requirement. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. ■ Congressional Review Act OIRA has determined that this direct final rule is not a major rule as defined by Subtitle E of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (known as the Congressional Review Act or CRA), 5 U.S.C. 804(2). This direct final rule will not result in an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more; a major increase in costs or prices; or significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of United States-based companies to compete with foreignbased companies in domestic and export markets. However, pursuant to the CRA, DEA is submitting a copy of this direct final rule to both Houses of Congress and to the Comptroller General. BILLING CODE 4410–09–P List of Subjects 21 CFR Part 1305 Drug traffic control, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements. For the reasons set out above, DEA amends 21 CFR part 1305 as follows: PART 1305—ORDERS FOR SCHEDULE I AND II CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES 1.

The public comment period for the ETS was to close on July 21, 2021, 30 days after publication of the ETS. However, OSHA received requests from several stakeholders to extend the comment period by an additional 30 days, through August 20, 2021 (Document ID 1078; 1079; 1080; 1082; 1083; 1086; 1088; 1089). These stakeholders explained that they need additional time to thoroughly review the ETS, gather input from members, and prepare informed comments (see, e.g., Document ID 1078; 1079; 1080; 1082; 1083; 1086; 1087; 1088; 1089). OSHA agrees to an extension and believes a 30-day extension of the public comment period is sufficient and appropriate in order to address these stakeholder requests. Therefore, the public comment period will be extended until August 20, 2021. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority and Signature James S.

This action is necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters located at Cambridge, MD, during a high-speed power boat racing event on July 24, 2021 and July 25, 2021. This regulation prohibits persons and vessels from being in the regulated area unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Maryland-National Capital Region or Coast Guard Event Patrol Commander. DATES: This rule is effective from 9 a.m. July 24, 2021, through 6 p.m. on July 25, 2021.

Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security Event PATCOM Event Patrol Commander FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code II. Background Information and Regulatory History On February 22, 2021, the Kent Narrows Racing Association of Chester, MD, notified the Coast Guard that it will be conducting the Thunder on the Choptank from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on July 24, 2021, and those same hours on July 25, 2021. The high-speed power boat racing event consists of approximately 50 participating inboard and outboard hydroplane and runabout race boats of various classes, 16 to 21 feet in length. The vessels will be competing on a designated, marked 1mile oval course located in the Choptank River in a cove located between Hambrooks Bar and the shoreline at Cambridge, MD. Details of the event were provided to the Coast Guard on April 19, 2021. In response, on June 7, 2021, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled Special Local Regulations; Choptank River, Cambridge, MD (86 FR 30221). There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 38233 invited comments on our proposed regulatory action related to this fireworks display. During the comment period that ended June 22, 2021, we received no comments. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date of this rule would be impracticable because the regulated area is needed prior to the start of the event on July 24, 2021, in order to safeguard the public from hazards from power boat racing, including risks of injury or death resulting from near or actual contact among participant vessels, spectator vessels or waterways users if normal traffic were to interfere with the event. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under the authority in 46 U.S.C. 70041. The Captain of the Port MarylandNational Capital Region (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the power boat races would be a safety concern for anyone intending to operate within certain waters of the Choptank River at Cambridge, MD. The purpose of this rulemaking is to protect event participants, spectators, and transiting vessels on certain waters of Choptank River before, during, and after the scheduled event IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule As noted above, we received no comments on our NPRM published June 7, 2021. There are no changes in the regulatory text of this rule from the proposed rule in the NPRM. The COTP Maryland-National Capital Region is establishing special local regulations from 9 a.m. on July 24, 2021 until 6 p.m. on July 25, 2021. The special local regulations will be enforced from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on July 24th and those same hours on July 25th. The regulated area will cover all navigable waters within Choptank River and Hambrooks Bay bounded by a line connecting the following coordinates: Commencing at the shoreline at Long Wharf Park, Cambridge, MD, at position latitude 38°34′30″ N, longitude 076°04′16″ W; thence east to latitude 38°34′20″ N, longitude 076°03′46″ W; thence northeast across the Choptank River along the Senator Frederick C. Malkus, Jr. (US–50) Memorial Bridge, at mile 15.5, to latitude 38°35′30″ N, longitude 076°02′52″ W; thence west along the shoreline to latitude 38°35′38″ N, longitude 076°03′09″ W; thence north and west along the shoreline to latitude E:\FR\FM\20JYR1.SGM 20JYR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 21, 2021, OSHA issued an ETS to 
protect healthcare and healthcare support service workers from 
occupational exposure to COVID-19 in settings where people with COVID-
19 are reasonably expected to be present.
    The public comment period for the ETS was to close on July 21, 
2021, 30 days after publication of the ETS. However, OSHA received 
requests from several stakeholders to extend the comment period by an 
additional 30 days, through August 20, 2021 (Document ID 1078; 1079; 
1080; 1082; 1083; 1086; 1088; 1089). These stakeholders explained that 
they need additional time to thoroughly review the ETS, gather input

public comment period is sufficient and appropriate in order to address 
these stakeholder requests. Therefore, the public comment period will 
be extended until August 20, 2021.
