Keep DOLI out! As a business owner we don’t need another governing body that will create another layer of guidelines.
Many businesses and most especially small business are working with reduced revenue and higher cost of operations due to the restrictions the government has already created.
I have always followed infection control processes, I’ve implemented changes to follow CDC and VDH guidelines to make my businesses as safe as possible for our employees and customers.
As a small businesses owner I’m personally still recovering from the closure and most certainly do not have the resources to pay employees to stay home for several days because of common allergy, cold and flu symptoms mirror SARS symptoms.
Adding this new layer will only burden on the mental wellness of an employee and the business with the slightest sniffle, cough or pressure that come with these common conditions. Please let’s STOP THE MADNESS!!!
