Burdensome Reporting

The requirement for businesses to report 2 or more cases in a 14 day period is overly burdensome. At a large facility or worksite, 2 employees may have zero contact but are still considered an "outbreak" if they test positive in a 14 day period. During the Omicron peak, reporting these cases to DOLI and VDH became a full time job since the form required so much information and it had to be re-entered for each site over and over again. There was no indication of what happened with this information. I believe the rule should be revoked.
