BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

OSHA also wrote that “(u)ntil those updates are complete, please refer to the CDC guidance for information on measures appropriate to protect fully vaccinated workers.”
