End mask mandates in the workplace

I am writing a comment on behalf of the new proposed Covid standard. I see no reason we should have a mask mandate in place for employees in the workplace we are seeing a downward trend in Covid cases everywhere. Another reason is business are under staffed so the people at work are calling in Covid just to get a break because they are over worked, making it look like Covid cases in the workplace. I work in a factory 8-10 hours a day 6 days a week an wearing a mask keeping up on a assembly line can’t get very frustrating. You can’t hear what other employees are saying causing a very dangerous work environment working around machines an equipment that could cause serious injury/death. If you don’t have to wear one outside of work why would we wear one inside of work? It’s time to return the world back to normal, a this should be a big step in the right direction.
