Updated COVID-19 reporting requirements for California employers

These reporting requirements have been extended through 1/1/2024 according to CA AB 1751.

SB 1159 is a new California law that imposes new mandatory reporting requirements on California employers.

SB 1159 took effect on September 17, 2020, the day it was signed by Governor Gavin Newsom. SB 1159 requires any employer with five or more employees to report to their insurers certain information about each California employee who has tested positive for COVID-19 since July 6, 2020, and going forward. The deadline to report this information depends upon the date the employee provided a specimen for testing (the “testing date”).

  • If the testing date for an employee is on or after September 17, 2020, you have three business days to report this information utilizing Form 2.

Please e-mail these forms to: If you have any questions, please contact Christine Opfer at 515-267-5166.


*** Please remember that this form does not eliminate your responsibility to report COVID-19 industrial claims through the usual claims reporting system. ***
