Provide Guidance Let Small Businesses Decide

Our medical, science and government leaders should strive to provide the best possible information about diseases and pandemics affecting the workplace environment.  However, the business owners should be allowed to make their own decisions on which best practices are appropriate for their business.  Regulations should not dictate over reaching mandates on employers.  Instead, provide updated information and let business owners do the rest.  Business owners do not need more regulations mandating what they must do and adding punitive liabilities for not choosing steps promoted by politics or bureaucracy.  Employers should be accountable for their decisions but give them the right to use their best judgment. Updated education is needed - not more regulations!
