SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
I. Background
The DOI Office of Occupational Safety
and Health (OSH) is establishing a new
Department-wide system of records,
INTERIOR/DOI–92, Public Health
Emergency Response Records. This
system will help DOI manage records
related to DOI’s response to the COVID–
19 public health emergency and future
high consequence public health threats,
support emergency or medically related
decisions affecting DOI personnel, and
ensure the health and safety of the
various categories of personnel,
contractors, grantees, detailees,
volunteers, interns, long-term trainees,
and visitors at DOI owned, operated,
leased or managed facilities or
properties.
This system supports DOI’s COVID–
19 vaccination and testing program as
required by Executive Orders 14043 and
14042; Office of Management and
Budget (OMB) Memorandums M–21–15
and M–21–25; COVID–19 Workplace
Safety: Agency Model Safety Principles
issued by the Federal Safer Federal
Workforce Task Force; and other
applicable law and policy. Federal
labor, employment and workforce
health and safety laws that govern the
collection, dissemination, and retention
of DOI employees’ medical information
include the Americans with Disability
Act (ADA), the Rehabilitation Act of
1973 (Rehab Act), and the Occupational
Safety and Health Act of 1970. The
Department of Health and Human
Services (HHS) Secretary may, under
section 319 of the Public Health Service
(PHS) Act codified at 42 U.S.C 247d,
declare that: (a) A disease or disorder
presents a public health emergency; or
(b) that a public health emergency,
including significant outbreaks of
infectious disease or bioterrorist attacks,
otherwise exists.
The Occupational Safety and Health
Act (OSHA) of 1970, Public Law 91–
596, 29 U.S.C. 668, Section 19(a)
requires the head of each Federal agency
to establish and maintain an effective
and comprehensive occupational safety
and health program and safe and
healthful places and conditions of
employment, and to keep adequate
records of all occupational accidents
and illnesses for proper evaluation and
necessary corrective action. OSHA also
requires that Federal agencies maintain
an injury and illness prevention
program, which is a proactive process
designed to reduce injuries, illnesses,
and fatalities. State governors also have
the authority to declare public health
emergencies by executive order or other
declaration. State declared public health
emergencies could also involve a
significant risk of substantial harm to
DOI personnel or visitors at DOI
buildings, facilities and events.
Executive Order 14043, Requiring
Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination
for Federal Employees, signed
September 9, 2021, establishes
mandatory requirements for Federal
executive agencies to implement a
program to require COVID–19
vaccinations for Federal employees,
with some exceptions as required by
law. Additionally, Executive Order
14042, Ensuring Adequate COVID
Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors,
signed September 9, 2021, establishes
requirements for Federal executive
agencies to implement workplace safety
protocols for contractors and
subcontractors to protect the health and
safety of the Federal workforce and
members of the public. DOI is
implementing these requirements to
ensure the safety of its workforce and
visitors to its facilities and sponsored
events.
DOI will collect and maintain
information within the scope of this
system of records when it is determined
that it is authorized and necessary to
meet Federal requirements and respond
to a declared public health emergency.
To make this determination, DOI will
evaluate the privacy risks for the
collection of information, who the
information pertains to, how the
information is used and shared, the
actions needed to protect individuals
and respond to the public health
emergency, and the laws that may
apply, including the U.S. Constitution,
Executive orders, Federal privacy laws,
Federal labor and employment laws,
and Federal workforce health and safety
laws.
DOI will only collect the minimum
information necessary to respond to
COVID–19, or future high consequence

public health threat, and comply with
Federal workforce safety requirements,
when DOI determines that a significant
risk of substantial harm exists to
individuals working at or visiting a DOI
controlled facility, or attending a DOI
sponsored event in a non-DOI
controlled facility. These circumstances
may include mitigation response
activities in response to: (1) An
Executive order or mandate or health
related declaration of a national
emergency by the President; (2) a
declared public health emergency by the
HHS Secretary; (3) when designated
Federal or state officials make a
declaration or official determination
that a public health emergency exists; or
(4) when DOI determines that a
significant risk of substantial harm
exists to the health of DOI personnel or
visitors and it is necessary to ensure
their health and safety in accordance
with the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) and other Federal and
local guidance on communicable
disease.
DOI’s responsibilities for ensuring a
safe workforce and secure buildings and
workspaces depend on the nature and
circumstances of the public health
emergency. In order to meet
requirements for workforce safety and
the Federal government-wide COVID–19
response, DOI must collect information
on its workforce related to the COVID–
19 disease to protect its workforce and
customers. DOI will make all efforts to
minimize the collection of information
to the greatest extent possible to protect
individual privacy and will only share
information when authorized by the
subject individuals or when authorized
or required by law. Records may include
personally identifiable information of
individuals who have: (1) Contracted or
may have been exposed to a suspected
or confirmed disease or illness that is
the subject of a declared public health
emergency; (2) attested to their
vaccination status or are required to
participate in a vaccination program; or
(3) are required to participate in a
testing program or have undergone
testing for a disease or illness that is the
subject of a declared public health
emergency or a Federal, state, or local
public health order. Records on
individuals may include circumstances
and dates of suspected exposure;
symptoms, referrals and results of
screening or treatments; health status
information; and related medical
information such as vaccination records
and results of testing for disease or
illness. DOI may also collect location
and dates of potential exposure,
information related to employee
requests for reasonable accommodation,
and other information that may be
relevant or required for DOI to comply
with Federal guidelines and prevent or
slow the spread of the COVID–19
disease and mitigate health impacts to
DOI personnel, visitors, and other
individuals at DOI controlled facilities
and sponsored events.
DOI is establishing a screening testing
program for SARS–CoV–2, the virus that
causes COVID–19, in limited
circumstances to test personnel who
work onsite and who are not fully
vaccinated and have requested a legal
exception under the law for reasonable
accommodations due to medical reasons
or religious belief. The purpose of the
testing is to identify asymptomatic or
presymptomatic infected individuals
who may have been exposed to the
SARS–CoV–2 virus to protect the health
and safety of individuals in DOI
buildings, facilities, and events.
Employees who are fully vaccinated
generally do not need to participate in
the testing program. An employee’s
failure to comply with vaccination or
testing requirements may result in
disciplinary action, including an
adverse action. However, records of
proposed disciplinary actions are
maintained in other employee personnel
records under a separate SORN and will
not be maintained in this system of
records.
Federal civilian employee medical
records are covered by a government-
wide Privacy Act SORN published by
the Office of Personnel Management
(OPM), OPM/GOVT–10, Employee
Medical File System Records (75 FR
35099, June 21, 2010; modification
published at 80 FR 74815, November 30,
2015). These Federal employee
confidential medical records are
managed in accordance with OPM
regulations at 5 CFR part 293, the OPM/
GOVT–10 SORN, and its published
routine uses. The OPM/GOVT–10 SORN
covers Federal civilians that are
identified under Title 5 U.S.C. chapter
21. The majority of DOI Federal
employees fall under Title 5 and their
medical records are covered by the
OPM/GOVT–10 SORN and must be
managed in accordance with that SORN
and applicable OPM regulations.
This DOI–92 notice covers DOI
employees and individuals that do not
fall under Title 5 and OPM’s personnel
recordkeeping authority and thus are
not covered by the OPM/GOVT–10
SORN. This includes DOI workers, such
as Title 25 Indian education personnel
and any other DOI workers, to the extent
they are not Federal employees as
defined under 5 U.S.C. 2105 or are not
subject to OPM regulations. This system
may also include information collected
or maintained on DOI personnel,
contractors, partners, detailees,
volunteers, interns, long-term trainees,
and visitors at or on facilities, buildings,
grounds, and properties that are owned,
operated, leased, managed or used by
DOI, or DOI sponsored meetings and
events. The information collected is
required to conduct health screening for
COVID–19 or other high consequence
public health threat, and will be used to
prevent the spread of disease and
reduce the risk of individuals with
symptoms of a communicable disease
entering a DOI building, facility, or DOI
hosted event. As part of health
screening efforts, DOI may be required
to monitor symptoms to identify
persons who may have been exposed to
communicable disease, or identify and
notify personnel or visitors who were
present in a DOI building, facility or
event that may have had physical
contact with or come into close
proximity with individuals who were
infected or had symptoms of infection
with a communicable disease.
Information in this system may be
shared with other DOI bureaus and
offices that have a need to know to carry
out their mission-essential functions,
when it is determined that the sharing
is authorized under applicable laws and
DOI policy and it is necessary to allow
DOI to manage a vaccination and testing
program and respond to a declared
public health emergency. To the extent
permitted by law, DOI may also share
information with appropriate Federal,
state, local, tribal, territorial, foreign, or
international government agencies when
authorized and compatible with the
purpose of this system, or when proper
and necessary, consistent with the
routine uses set forth in this system of
records notice.
II. Privacy Act
The Privacy Act of 1974, as amended,
embodies fair information practice
principles in a statutory framework
governing the means by which Federal
agencies collect, maintain, use, and
disseminate individuals’ records. The
Privacy Act applies to records about
individuals that are maintained in a
‘‘system of records.’’ A ‘‘system of
records’’ is a group of any records under
the control of an agency from which
information is retrieved by the name of
an individual or by some identifying
number, symbol, or other identifying
particular assigned to the individual.
The Privacy Act defines an individual
as a United States citizen or lawful
permanent resident. Individuals may
request access to their own records that
are maintained in a system of records in
