Proposed Permanent Standard for COVID for Infectious Prevention:SARS-CoV-2 Virus.

I write in strong support of the proposed permanent standard to help protect Virginia workers from the COVID-19 virus.  It is clear the virus is not going away anytime soon.  A permanent standard would not only protect Virginia's hard-working employees during the current Corona Virus Pandemic, but would also help should a new and different pandemic occur in the future.

A clear, science-based standard from a single agency would give the necessary guidance to employers and workers alike during this and future pandemics.  It is clear that all Virginia workers require these needed protections and I respectfully urge the Safety and Health Codes Board to move quickly to adopt a strong, permanent standard.
