No to making permanent, use National Emergency declaration instead

I read through the regulations and although safety of all citizens is absolutely necessary during this crises, making them permanent regulations does not make sense.  It not only overburdens the employer, but it does not take into account the evolution of a vaccine and any other mitigating severity of the disease.  It think replacing the temporary regulations with the same timeline as the US DOL where the guideline used for COBRA law based on the National Emergency "Outbreak Period", is adequate and a better solution.  So, when the outbreak period is declared to be ended, the regulations end or within 60 days thereafter.
