I'm reaching out to express my opinion that the COVID-19 Workplace Safety Emergency Standard should not be made permanent. Although I feel that Virginia handled the COVID situation better than many other states, the overall approach was and is a fundamental governmental over-reach and is unconstitutional.
The limitations on the ability to work and to earn a living for both business owners and "workers" has been devastating to our state and our country. This should never happen again.
I strongly recommend that we do not make this a permanent standard that will undoubtedly only lead to further infringement on and erosion of our rights as citizens.
