Puerto Rico Governor Pedro R. Pierluisi has issued an Executive Order (EO) requiring all private sector employers with at least 50 employees to adopt COVID-19 vaccine or testing requirements.

Under EO 2021-075, which is similar in scope to the recent Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Emergency Temporary Standard, such employers must require their employees to provide:

  • Proof of COVID-19 vaccination;
  • A negative test result at least every seven days; or
  • Certified proof of recovery within the last three months from COVID-19.
