COVID-19 Workplace Safety Emergency Standard

Good morning,

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. 

Thank you,
